Job Growth Accelerates

The news was appropriately good on this Friday morning.

In December, the unemployment rate fell to 8.5 percent, the lowest since February 2009.  The U.S. Labor Department reported a 200,000 gain in jobs.  The news is good, but the country still must clear hurdles, including adding sufficient jobs to keep up with the population growth, and better wages to keep pace with overall inflation.

Still, the steady jobs gain is good news.
