Unemployment numbers down nationwide, but what does that mean for Arizona?Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released a new report Friday with statistics on the economy.
The report says the unemployment rate dipped below 8 percent for the first time since 2009, to 7.8 percent. The Obama administration is touting the numbers as a success. However, only 144,000 jobs were added, and some Republicans say the numbers fail to take into account people who have stopped looking for work.
