US employment -- anemic recovery continues

7 Dec 2012 by Jim Fickett.

As I have been predicting for a long time, the rate of US job growth seems to have got stuck at a very low level:

Nevertheless, job growth is above the neutral rate, and so the unemployment rate is still in a downtrend.

So the recovery may be anemic, but it is still a recovery.

All the usual graphs have been updated; see US employment and links there.
