Word on the Tweet was wrong: 10% unemployment.

Went down .2% instead of up .2%.  My sarcastic reaction to the folks responsible for this amazing long-term trend in the American economic situation* remains unchanged.

and leisure and hospitality showed little change over the month.

Employment in professional and business services rose by 86,000 in November.
Temporary help services accounted for the majority of the increase, adding
52,000 jobs. Since July, temporary help services employment has risen by

Health care employment continued to rise in November (21,000), with not-
