    According to the Labor Department, the number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits jumped to the highest level in two months. Applications increased by 15,000 to an adjusted 382,000. That's up from 367,000 the previous week. The main reason for the increase in unemployment is due to Hurricane Issac, which hit the gulf coast nearly two weeks ago, temporarily shutting down several states and forcing people out of work.
