The chemical manufacturing subsector was down 900 jobs to 803,800 positions.
The unemployment rate of college graduates 25 and older was 2.9%, down 0.3% from August. The unemployment rate of non-high school graduates was 8.4%, down 0.7%.
Considering that 2nd quarter GDP was up 4.6%, I think this is a reasonably solid sign that things are looking up for the rest of the year. Of course, there's always portents of DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM around the corner (ISIS, Ebola, etc), but let's hope that the rest of the economic year is pretty good.
