The Department of Labor released the July employment report. There were 162,000 jobs added and the unemployment rate is down a bit to 7.4%. Previous months' number were revised downward: May from 195,000 to 176,000 new jobs and June from 195,000 to 188,000. Basically, more of the same, as the news is good, but not great.
