everyone in the media is so excited!

Unemployment for January dropped to:

9.7%*


CBS reports "drop" in unemployment.

*Ooops ... they forgot to tell you something!

There were nearly a million people who were unemployed last year who weren't included in the unemployment statistics. That means 8.4 million people lost their jobs instead of 7.5 million.

If your unemployment insurance has run out or you have given up looking for work, Obama says you don't count as unemployed anymore (If you or someone you know is out of work that'll be welcome news).

Despite predictions of job gains in January, there were still 20,000 people who lost their jobs.

But fear not! The government is hiring Census Workers so (at least a few months) there will be lots of temporary jobs available.

I wonder if they're offering health insurance?
