#rsrh The unemployment rate still su… ah, limps along at 9.1%.

137K new jobs in September, half of which are Verizon strikers going back to work. As one of my colleagues pointed out privately: well, we counted them as lost jobs when they went on strike; we should count them the other way now that they’re back to their jobs. Also, they adjusted up August’s job growth! …to 57K jobs gained.

Huzzah.

As another one of my (former) colleagues pointed out privately: it’s a measure of this administration that all of this qualifies as good news.
