OFFICIAL U.S. UNEMPLOYMENT RATE: 7.0%
U.S. Jobless Rate Lowest in 5 Years, Raising Odds of a Fed Move
U.S. payrolls rose by 203,000 in November, and the unemployment rate fell to its lowest level in five years – signs of growth that could prompt the Fed to begin easing its easy-money policies.
– In November, the jobless rate dropped to 7 percent.
– A year ago the Fed said that it would keep interest rates at their near-zero floor as long as the unemployment rate remained above 6.5 percent.
– Meanwhile the U.S. labor force participation rate remains near a 35 year low.
– With 91.3 million Americans not in the workforce, the “real” U.S. unemployment rate is much closer to 11.5%.
