In the last decade, job growth in the U.S. has slowed dramatically.
And for many people, the only way to find a new gig is to retire.
But the job market has been getting better.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics released its latest unemployment report on Thursday.
In its latest measure, the unemployment rate in October dropped to 4.9% from 5.1% in September.
That’s a 1.5 percentage point decline from the previous month.
The unemployment rate for those 25 to 54 has dropped to 7.2% from 8.3% in October.
And while the unemployment rates for those 65 and older have stayed relatively stable, they’ve fallen to 9.4% from 10.1%.
The national unemployment rate is now 7.3%, which is lower than the average for the last year.
That might not seem like much, but the U-6 unemployment rate dropped to 5.9%, the lowest rate since 2009.
That means nearly 5 million Americans are either unemployed or in part-time work.
The report also notes that the unemployment in November is down slightly from the October report, from 7.5% to 7%.
However, the number of Americans working part-timers dropped from 14.4 million in October to 14.1 million in November.
There’s been a lot of talk about the economic recovery in recent months.
There were a lot more jobs in the United States than we had previously thought.
And the job growth has been more steady and more robust than the recovery that was seen before the recession began.
Still, we still have a long way to go.
The jobs numbers come on the heels of the Labor Department announcing a new report on job creation and job loss in October that showed the U.-6 unemployment rates fell to 5%.
That’s lower than previous monthly reports and suggests that the recovery has not been strong enough to make up for the long job losses that were sustained during the Great Recession.
It’s not just the unemployment numbers that are encouraging.
There have also been several job gains that are showing up in the jobless numbers.
The number of people who say they are actively looking for a job jumped by more than 20,000 to 9,000 in October from 8,000 a month earlier.
That increase came despite a decrease in the number who are actively seeking jobs.
That may seem like a small change, but it suggests that people are still actively looking.
And that is a good sign that the economy is still picking up.
Still in the middle of the recovery, the jobs numbers are still far from where they should be.
We know that the number that are actively searching for work has increased over the last two months.
And in October, that number was the highest since October 2007, when the recession officially began.
But that number is likely to fall in November, according to the Bureau of Labour Statistics.
The last time the number was above 8,200 people in October was May 2009.
This year, the labor force participation rate has been in the 5% range for nearly three months.
That indicates that the labor market is still relatively tight.
But it also suggests that we may be getting closer to full employment.
As the number continues to climb, it’s not going to take long for people to find jobs.
So the U -6 unemployment numbers can’t necessarily mean the end of the job-less recovery.
We’re not really in full recovery yet.
But we have plenty of time to get back on track if we want to avoid the worst of the recession and to start the recovery.
