The most important question for Americans, particularly African Americans, today is: “Where are the jobs?” But, another question is circulating in the wake of Friday’s jobs report: “Where did you find yours?”
As reported recently on Politic365.com, the unemployment rate for African Americans fell from 16.7% in August to 16% in September.
The number of Blacks easing into the labor market and making themselves available for hire increased to 18,103,000 in September from 17,930,000 in August.
The number of Blacks employed climbed to 15,209,000, up from the August total of 14,941,000. Just where are people finding work? It’s hard to say exactly.
The U.S. Department of Labor, which issues the jobs report, did not provide any specific data about what sectors of the economy added African American employees. Source
