US Job Market At A Glance #infographic

Take a look at this infographic from Paid Employment that shows the U.S. current employment situation. The graphic visualizes many of the figures SparkNews has been discussing this week. As you can see, the unemployment rates are dropping but more interestingly, the unemployment rate for men in the U.S. is dropping at a faster rate than that of women. Furthermore, the unemployment rate for blacks is much higher than than of whites. By glancing at the graph you can see that their unemployment rate dropped a bit for some time only to rise again at 17 percent in November. There were also more jobs created back in September than in November, but there was still more job growth in November when compared to October.
