Good news or bad news on the jobs front, depending on your perspective.
The U.S. added 146,000 jobs in November, more than the 93,000 expected, and the jobless rate fell to 7.7 percent, its lowest mark since December of 2008, the government said Friday.
But the Labor Department also said 49,000 fewer jobs were added in October and September than had been initially estimated.
The jobless rate fell to 7.7 percent in November from 7.9 percent in October mainly because some people weren’t counted as unemployed because they stopped looking for work.
