November not only met, but exceeded, our expectations with one of the largest increases of employment over the past few years. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released its November 2014 unemployment report, showing an overall monthly gain of a whopping 321,000 jobs – 100,000+ more jobs than the previous month. January remains the only month of 2014 with job gains below 200,000. In total, since the beginning of the year 2.6 million jobs have been added to the US economy.

The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 5.8 percent, which is still the lowest rate we’ve seen since September 2008.

Revisions to prior months show that both September and October experienced more growth than previously reported. The September payroll number was revised from +256,000 to +271,000 and the October number from +214,000 to +243,000. That makes a combined 44,000 more jobs than initially reported.
