I don't consider it to be meaningful . . . It took them over a year before they decided we were IN a recession so it makes no sense to see an up-tick and dedice that it automatically means we're out.
I don't consider us out of the water until most people who lost their jobs in part because of the downturn in the economy are fully and gainfully employed again. (Of course, employment and unemployment is not really a factor in deciding the degree of a recession)
This current uptick simply proves that we've stabilized without those very people being employed ... it's not an accurate assessment.
