WASHINGTON (AP) -- The unemployment rate dropped sharply last month to 9 percent, the lowest level in nearly two years. But the economy generated only 36,000 net new jobs, the fewest in four months.

Let's just say I believe this to be a whole lot more believable. Wink

I find the various unemployment figures to be confusing... non-farm, seasonally adjusted included the self-employed, doesnt include contractors, includes people who are unemployed and have stopped looking, started looking etc etc etc...

Looking at the smaller pictures, retail spending is up, manufacturing jobs have ticked up... it's getting better, agonizingly... slowly... getiing... better.

U.S. Payrolls Rise 103,000 in September
The gain reflected the return to work of 45,000 telecommunications employees.
Verizon workers come back off of a strike and these are counted as gains... Oh well, a while back they cheered 50k MickeyD's jobs.
