Strong job growth lowers unemployment to 4.6 percent
WASHINGTON (AP) — A burst of job growth across a w ide range of businesses pushed the nation's unemployment rate to a 24-year low of 4.6 percent in November.
Last month's seasonally adjusted rate of joblessness — down from 4.7 percent in October — was the lowest since October 1973 when it also was 4.6 percent, the Labor Department said Friday. The rate hasn’t been lower since March 1970, when it was 4.4 percent.
The report upset the inflation-sensitive bond market but the stock market took it in stride.
Employers added a seasonally adjusted 404.000 workers to their payrolls — roughly a quarter of them in such retail establishments as department stores, girt shops, book stores and catalog sales operations.
