now, that’s what i call a recovery

Will catch up later – so much good news to report 🙂

AP: Employers hired in February at the fastest pace in almost a year, and the unemployment rate fell to 8.9 percent – a nearly two-year low.

The economy added a net 192,000 jobs. Factories, professional and business services, education and health care were among the sectors that hired…

Private employers added 222,000 jobs last month, the most since April. That shows companies are feeling more confident about the economy and their own prospects. The job gains bolstered hopes that businesses will hire aggressively through the rest of the year and strengthen the economic recovery.

The unemployment rate is now at its lowest point since April 2009. It’s been falling for three months, down from 9.8 percent in November, marking the sharpest three-month drop since 1983.

“These numbers can be sustained and built on,” said Joel Naroff at Naroff Economic Advisors. “Businesses are finally taking some of those profits they are earning and putting them back into the work force.”
