Unemployment Rate Hits 5 1/2 Year Low

You’re unlikely to hear or read about the unemployment rate reaching a 5.5 year low of 4.4% anytime between now and Tuesday (Election Day), so I thought I’d draw some attention to that fact here. Everyone be sure to keep this in mind when going to the polls on Tuesday…

The unemployment rate dropped to a five-year low of 4.4 percent in October as employers added 92,000 new jobs – flashing a picture of a strong labor market as the midterm elections draw near.
