Unemployment numbers for November

Today's numbers are "the worst monthly job loss since Dec., 1974" according to the Washington Post's "More Bad Economic News on the Labor Front: Employers Cut 533,000 Jobs in November."

If you want to see the raw numbers, check out the Bureau of Labor Statistic's "Employment Situation Summary." If you just want the tables, check out this page.

President-elect Barack Obama has already released a press release in response to these numbers, which you can read on the web site. No press release from the current administration as of 9:30 MST.
