AP: Video: Ed Donahue: US Employers Add 209K Jobs, Rate 6.2 Pct

Two-hundred-thousand jobs in a month even if it is not a high as the previous month of two-hundred-eighty-thousand jobs is a very good number. And when you have a slight uptick in unemployment from 6.1% to 6.2% that is a good sign as well because that means more Americans who aren't currently working are looking for work. Which are the people policymakers in Washington should be targeting. Those are the people the Obama Administration are concern with and why they've pushed so many ideas designed to put those people to work. And if they could get any cooperation with the Republican House of Representatives, job growth would be even better right now.
