Final Job Report before Election...171,000 jobs added

Pretty good number and BLS upward revised the prior months as well.

Hiring increased last month, while the unemployment rate ticked higher, according to a report released just four days before the presidential election.

The economy added 171,000 jobs in October, while the unemployment ticked up to 7.9, from 7.8% in September, the Labor Department said Friday.

Economists surveyed by CNNMoney had expected employers to add 125,000 positions in the month and unemployment to inch up to 7.9%.

The number of jobs added in August and September were revised sharply higher, adding a combined 84,000 more jobs that originally reported.

Professional and business services added 51,000 positions, while health care employment rose by 31,000. Retail and leisure and hospitality also boosted payrolls. Manufacturing was little changed and mining lost 9,000 jobs.

Good to hear you're happy about the new unemployment numbers!

Disagree.

Nothing groundbreaking, but definitively good.

Keep in mind the stimulous package was supposed to lower unemployment to 5% and create 500,000 jobs a month. Out of the jobs created this month, how many are in the private sector and are full time rather than seasonal?
