It’s an interesting unemployment report today.
The unemployment rate rose to 9.9 percent, but a lot more jobs were created in April — 290,000 — than economists had been predicting.
One of the reasons that the jobless rate may have risen from 9.7 percent is that more people are looking for work now, given that employers are hiring more.
What are you experiencing in the job market? Is it any easier now to find employment?
If you’re working, is your employer hiring, cutting or standing pat?
And, for you stock investors, how do you think Wall Street is going to treat the job news today? Another wild ride or will it take things in stride?
