"The productivity of U.S. workers increased in the fourth quarter at a faster pace as companies sought to pare costs to preserve profits. The measure of employee output per hour rose at an unrevised 2.6 percent annual rate after a third-quarter gain of 2.3 percent, figures from the Labor Department showed today in Washington. Labor expenses fell for a second straight year." (03/03/11)
