WASHINGTON, DC-The unemployment figures released by the Labor Department
on Friday morning illustrate the stop-and-go nature of this recovery. The US
economy added 67,000 jobs last month, which was more than many economists had forecast. Overall, some 54,000 positions were dropped, many in state and local governments. The cumulative affect of these shifts is a rise in the
unemployment rate to 9.6% from 9.5% in July–the first rise in four
months. The Labor Department also released revised figures for July. Instead of
131,000 positions lost, that number was 54,000.
