The economy added 102,000 jobs in September, a bit below what's needed to keep up with population growth, while maintaining a 9.1% official unemployment rate. Well, that's better than... losing 102,000 jobs! Eh? Hmm.

Of course the most battered area was the public sector, which lost about 35,000 jobs, including 24,400 in public education. That area is not expected to get better, since everyone blames public school teachers for everything bad nowadays.

Onward to October! October's the month when everything economical will finally get fixed...
