Unemployment creeps down, but barely

The Labor Department released unemployment and job growth numbers Friday morning.

The unemployment rate crept down to 9 percent in October, after staying at 9.1 percent for the past three consecutive months. However, despite that small bit of good news,  the country added a less-than-expected 80,000 jobs last moth, according to the Labor Department on Friday.

The unemployment rate hasn’t been below 9 percent since March 2011.
How do you guys feel about this latest news? Is it a good sign of things to come or further proof of our stagnant economy?
