Positive news in the latest jobs report

The latest jobs report released this morning brought positive news, as the economy added 171,000 jobs in October.  Below is an interesting chart from Steve Benen that he updates every month that shows the trendline of job growth since the depths of the Great Recession in early 2009.

The overall national unemployment rate increased slightly to 7.9 %, largely as a result of more people entering the workforce.
