04 November, 2011

美国10月份的失业率稍稍下跌,同时就业机会净增长8万个。美国劳工部星期五的报告说,失业率下跌了0.1%,为9%。10月份的失业率是六个月以来的最低水平。虽然如此,美国目前仍然有1千390万人没有工作。美国在几十年来未遇的最严峻的经济衰退中失去了800万个就业机会,10月份的新增就业机会只是很小的一部分。

The U.S. unemployment rate dropped slightly in October, while the economy had a net gain of 80,000 jobs.Friday's report from the Labor Department says the unemployment rate declined one-tenth of a percent to 9.0 percent.The jobless rate is the lowest in six months, but still leaves 13.9 million Americans out of work.The U.S. economy has recovered only a fraction of the 8 million jobs lost in the recession, which was the worst downturn in decades.
