That would have meant that layoffs were slowing and hiring was picking up. Employers added a net total of 60,000 jobs last month, but that is far below the 200,000 jobs a month needed to keep up with population growth and to help get some of the 15 million unemployed back to work. This is the nation as a whole.
What is your feeling about this, and what is happening in your area?

Wow, that's terrible. I don't think things in my area are anywhere near as bad as they are in other parts of the country.
This makes me wonder what sort of shopping season retailers are expecting this holiday season and if they will cut back on seasonal help as well. That will be less temporary jobs available, which I am sure some areas are depending on.
While this news is bad and it sucks for a lot of people, my only hope is that our government doesn't throw more money at the problem. It hasn't helped yet, and it's not likely to in the future.
