US unemployment falls again in October

AP

The US economy added 214,000 jobs in October, while the unemployment rate has fallen to 5.8%, official Labor Department figures show.

The number of jobs created is slightly below forecasts of about 230,000 new posts, but still indicates a healthy US jobs market.

The figures are a significant gauge of the health of the economy.

US employers have added at least 200,000 jobs for nine months in a row, the longest growth period since 1995.

Jobs figures for August and September were also revised higher.

The burst of hiring lowered the unemployment rate to 5.8% from 5.9%. That is the lowest rate since July 2008.

But although economic growth has picked up this year and job opportunities with it, this week’s mid-term elections revealed employment was voters’ top worry, suggesting many Americans have not yet felt any improvement.

The US central bank, the Federal Reserve, ended its stimulus programme, known as “quantitative easing”, last month.

Its aim was to boost spending and investment by buying bonds, thus keeping long-term interest rates low.

The Fed has indicated it will raise short-term interest rates if the economy continues to grow.

Its chairman, Janet Yellen, has given no firm date for the rise, but the Fed has said the move would be a “considerable time” after the stimulus programme ended.
