Many believe the jobs added are in the retail sectors with holiday shopping on the horizon. the fewest in four months and below September’s revised total of 158,000. The general unemployment rate dropped to 9 percent from 9.1.

In another encouraging sign Black teen joblessness fell for the third straight month, moving from 44.2 percent to 37.8 percent.

Businesses added 104,000 jobs, below September’s total. Government shed 24,000 jobs.

The report included some positive signs. The government revised August and September’s figures upward by 102,000. Average hourly earnings rose. And the unemployment rate fell for the first time since July, because a separate survey of households showed more people found work.

The report suggests that President Barack Obama will likely face the voters with the highest unemployment rate of any postwar president.
