July Unemployment Report

HiringThe 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.

Yes it is a good trend, but let's hope we can keep it going and get are nation more fully employed. At least it is a positive trend now.
