1. 85,000 job losses was much worse than expected.
2. Temp jobs continue to rise. I think companies are slowly gaining more confidence, and hiring ‘just-in-time labor’ is a good indicator. Hopefully most of these temporary jobs become permanent.
3. Unemployment staying above 10% is a big psychological factor. If it had dipped below double-digits more unemployed workers would be encouraged to start looking for work again (which would likely bring the unemployment rate back over 10% next month, so c’est la vie).
4. Democrats can’t sustain too many reports like this one. If unemployment remains above 10% in November I’d bet the GOP takes back the House.
