This morning's big news story was the 9.7% unemployment number, which is a drop from last month's figure of 10%.
The drop was the first seen since the summer of 2008, but economists were mixed on whether the report indicates a trend of things to come.
Most economists agree that the report has more good news than bad news. One issue that is particularly troubling to some is the significant rise in temporary employment.
Although this has historically been a sector that makes gains quicker than others, in this report in was the leader, which means less people are receiving benefits such as healthcare.
The main take-away from the report is that economy is bouncing back, slowly but surely. Employers are beginning to hire and job seekers are finding employment.
Will it be fast enough to save President Obama and the democrats in November? Only time will tell.
