LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The weekly unemployment update from the Labor Department had some positive signs for the country at large.

Claims for jobless benefits dropped by 22,000 last week. However, that same report showed some bad news in the Commonwealth.

Kentucky ranked third among states with the largest increase, with nearly 3,000 more claims than the week before.
