The 321,000 advance in payrolls followed a 243,000 increase in October that was stronger than previously reported, Labor Department figures showed today in Washington. The November gain exceeded the most optimistic projection in a Bloomberg survey of economists. The jobless rate held at a six-year low of 5.8 percent and average hourly earnings rose 0.4 percent, the most since June of last year.

The 321,000 jobs added during the month of November is the highest number of jobs added in a single month since January of 2012.

Numbers for September and October were also revised upward by 44,000

    Someone, somewhere, is still looking for work, so Obama’s economy is a failure.

    Or something.

      Someone, somewhere, still has a job (>coughcough<) and that's what Republicans are really complaining about.

        Indeed! It’s as if all the unemployed people, and especially Black people, got jobs when FDR, JFK, LBJ, and Bill Clinton were in office. I marvel at at the idiocy of so many “holier than thou progressives” who are so quick to condemn President Obama for not fulfilling their expectations, without regard to the hostile political and media environment President Obama has been faced with for the past 6 years.
