U.S. August Payrolls Rose 144,000; Jobless Rate Falls

Sept. 3 (Bloomberg) — U.S. employers added 144,000 workers to payrolls in August, the most since May and the first acceleration in five months, suggesting the economy is emerging from a midyear lull. The unemployment rate fell to 5.4 percent, the lowest since October 2001.

The increase follows a revised gain of 73,000 in July that was more than twice the number estimated last month. Manufacturing employment rose 22,000 and the jobless rate declined from 5.5 percent in July.

Of course when the jobless rate under Bill Clinton was at 5.8% that was good. Now that it is 5.4% under George Bush that will be considered baaad.
