Today, Monster.com is kicking off its "Keep America Working" tour with a job fair at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square (it's at 1535 Broadway, at 46th Street, on the 5th floor), which starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m. WCBS 2 reports that over 90 employers will be at the job fair and thousands of job seekers are expected. In a small bit of less-depressing- than-the-usual news, jobless claims fell 31,000 from the original estimate of 670,000 claims for the week ending February 28. Of course, 639,000 jobless claims is no fun and the number of people continuing to stay on unemployment is 5.11 million (for the week ending February 21). Reuters says, "That number remains near record highs, indicating that the harsh economic environment is making it tough to find new jobs."
