    Employers add 192,000 jobs in February - USATODAY.com

    WASHINGTON — Employers in February hired at the fastest pace in almost a year and the unemployment rate fell to 8.9% — a nearly two-year low.

    Businesses added 192,000 jobs last month, with factories, professional and business services, education and health care among those expanding. Retailers, however, trimmed jobs. State and local governments, wrestling with budget shortfalls, slashed 30,000 jobs, the most since November. Federal government hiring was flat.

    Private employers added 222,000 jobs last month, the most since April. That shows companies are feeling more confident in the economy and about their own financial prospects. And it bolstered hopes that businesses will shift into a more aggressive hiring mode and boost the economic recovery.

    The unemployment rate is now the lowest since April 2009. It has been falling for three months, from 9.8% in November, the sharpest three-month decline since 1983

    Except he didn't. Wanker came in after the unions had already made concessions, but I know how you RWers love revising what actually happened.

    Which executive order did Obama sign regarding NASA?

    2500 people would have been laid off... Legislation passed and those jobs were saved from the axe..

    You can pretend that didn't happen all you want... Facts seem to be your enemy...

    Typical with dumbfucks like you....

    Please post where I claimed he signed an executive order...
