May 2014 Unemployment Rate, Jobs

May 2014 Jobs Numbers and Unemployment Rate were released this morning, Friday, June 6, 2014.  217,000 jobs were added; unemployment rate stayed the same at 6.3%. Details and analysis will be presented throughout the day and the weekend.

We  have now recouped all jobs (in numbers) that were lost during the Recession.  In January 2008 there were 138,365,000 jobs and now there are 138,463,000 jobs.   Of course, the population has increased and we still need more jobs for those "extra" people.  (However, we have 15 million extra people since January 2008, and 14.5 of those "extra" people are 55 years or over, and 8 million are actually 65 and over.) 

May 2014 reports to be published: (Notation on the links will be changed to "May" or "Updated for May" when the updated reports become available.)
