28,000 new jobs added in health care

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 28,000 new health care jobs were added in August. The largest gains were in ambulatory health care services (+17,000) and hospitals (+9,000). The unemployment rate remains at 9.6 percent (roughly unchanged). We still have 14.9 million unemployed people in this country.

When's the U.S. economy going to fully recover? The good news is that things don't seem to be getting much worse, so let's hope that things will slowly get better.

  1. It is interesting whether these are temporary or permanent positions. That is a very important question.
