    WASHINGTON (AP) -- U.S. employers added almost a quarter million workers in May, extending a nine-month hiring spree and accommodating enough new jobseekers to hold the unemployment rate steady at 5.6 percent.

    Payrolls swelled by almost 1 million in the last three months alone, the Labor Department said Friday. Employment figures for March and April were revised up to reflect the addition of 353,000 and 346,000 jobs respectively.

    Jobless recovery indeed. :rolleyes: But i'm waiting for some liberal to talk about how we're in the worst economy since Hoover/FDR, and how unemployment rates aren't falling, etc.

    Glenn Beck went over the numbers from 1996 and 2004 for various categories including items like unemployment rate and smaller categories like Black Unemployment, Hispanic Unemployment etc. It was amazing to see that every category had Bush either Even or way ahead of Clinton's 1st term. Both were good, but if Bush's is better than Clinton's economy and Bush's is the "Worst since the Great depression" then what does that make Clinton's?
