As the unemployment rate drops to its lowest level since February 2009, the labor market is slowly improving.
But the number of Americans looking for work is down again, according to a new report.
Here’s what’s going on.
The U.N. Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) said Friday that the jobless rate fell to 6.8% in September from 7.1% in August.
That was an improvement from 7% in July.
However, the U.K. also reported a drop in the unemployment figure, from 6.9% in the September data to 6%.
That’s a reversal from July, when it was 6.4%.
According to ESCWA, the drop in unemployment means that about 8.4 million people in the U of A’s public sector and 5.9 million people working in the private sector are jobless.
The rate in the public sector fell to 4.3% from 4.4%, while in the province of Alberta, it was 4.7% from 5.1%.
The unemployment rate in private-sector employment rose to 10.9%, the lowest since March 2009, from 10.7%.
It was 10.5% in December 2016.
According the ESCWA report, in the first six months of 2017, there were about 4.6 million fewer people looking for jobs, with 1.7 million people unemployed.
The unemployment rate fell from 5% in January 2018 to 4% in October 2018.
While it’s been a rough month, the economy is getting better.
According to the ESCWAs latest report, the number working in construction fell by 1.5 million to 3.3 million in September, while the number in agriculture increased by 1 million to 498,000.
A drop in manufacturing jobs also fell by 3.1 million to 2.4 billion, while in services it rose by 1 billion to 635 million.
Employment gains in the last quarter of 2018 were offset by a drop of more than 2 million jobs in retail and accommodation, according the ESCAWA.
This is still a long way from the 2.9 billion jobs that were lost in the recession.
Even though the job market has improved, it still doesn’t account for all the people who have lost their jobs and are still searching for work.
The numbers above show that the U and UK have lost around 4.2 million jobs and around 1.6 billion jobs, respectively.
In addition, there are still more people out of work in the US than in the UK.
But the job growth in the United States has been uneven.
Since the start of the year, employment in the federal government rose by 5.2%, the same pace as the first three months of the current year.
However, the unemployment numbers dropped by 0.6% from September to September and 1.3%.
On the other hand, the job gains in Ontario have been uneven and could be more significant.
The number of people working part time has more than doubled, while part-time employment has fallen by about 1.4% since last year.
These two figures show that there is still more work to be done, and that we can’t count on a single recovery to be the answer.
