Special Factor: Minnesota has indicated that approximately 11,500 of their reported initial claims are a result of state employees filing due to the state government shutdown.
In the week ending July 9, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 405,000, a decrease of 22,000 from the previous week's revised figure of 427,000. The 4-week moving average was 423,250, a decrease of 3,750 from the previous week's revised average of 427,000.
Woopty doo. We should celebrate a 22k decrease from a abnormally high number to begin with.

Well, not quite, good buddy.
More like it alternates between "really horrible" and "(expletive) atrocious".
