The unexpected increase in initial jobless claims comes after the March nonfarm payroll report showed signs the U.S. labor market is healing. Employers added 918,000 jobs last month as the unemployment rate fell to 6%, its lowest level since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Data released Thursday showed 744,000 Americans filed first-time jobless claims in the week ended April 3. Analysts surveyed by Refinitiv were expecting 680,000 filings. The previous week’s total was revised higher by 9,000 to 728,000.
