Unemployment Rate Stuck at 7.8%

NATIONWIDE (WIFR) -- Not enough jobs were created last month to bring down the nation’s unemployment rate. Just 155,000 jobs were added, keeping the unemployment rate at 7.8%.

The biggest gains came in healthcare, food services, and manufacturing.

There are some concerns those numbers are only a result of seasonal hiring. More than 12 million Americans are still looking for work.
