    U.S. Added 266,000 Jobs in November; Unemployment at 3.5%

    The Numbers
    ■ 266,000 jobs were added in November. Analysts had expected a gain of about 180,000, according to MarketWatch.

    ■ The unemployment rate was 3.5 percent, down from the previous month.

    ■ Average hourly earnings rose 0.2 percent, with a year-over-year gain of 3.1 percent.

    The Takeaway
    The return of tens of thousands of striking workers to their jobs at General Motors helped supercharge hiring totals last month.

    The reassuring jobs report, released Friday morning by the Labor Department, offered a counterpoint to renewed anxieties about an escalating trade war and a weakening global economy.

    Job, jobs, jobs, more jobs under the Trump administration.

    payrolls up
    jobless rate lowest since 1969
    The underemployment rate fell.

    Our economy is strong headed for 2020!

    Isn't this a good thing?

    It is a great thing but Democrats are too busy talking about impeachment. Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi are unhinged. Biden is yelling at farmers. Pelosi is talking praying for the president. My question, what exactly is she praying about?

    Because Obama was black and blue and Trump is white and red.

    Two reasons, obama is a democrat and he's black. Last day of the obama administration, the economy sucks as far as republicans are concerned even though W left the country in a wreck for obama. First day of trump administration, economy is great.

    The Obama recovery of the last seven years remains the worst in postwar American history.

    We really need to look at the kinds of jobs that are being created. A recently article came out showing that nearly half of Americans are working in low wage jobs (Almost half of all Americans work in low-wage jobs - CBS News).

    So yes, while people are getting jobs, if they are such as the aforementioned, it doesn't mean much.

    Lol! So basically a bunch of people who already had jobs but had to go on strike to get a pay raise went back to work, and you're counting those people as new hires while giving credit to someone who hates unions.

    Jobs added from January-November:
    2012: 1937
    2013: 2235
    2014: 2737
    2015: 2449
    2016: 2103

    2017: 1979
    2018: 2452
    2019: 1976

    So, President Obama created more jobs in every year of his second term than we have so far this year, but he did it while reducing the deficit instead of increasing it.
    Obstruction of Justice also applies to overt coercion of court or government officials via the means of threats or actual physical harm and also applying to deliberate sedition against a court official to undermine the appearance of legitimate authority.
