U.S. Issues Jobs Report and Unemployment Rate for January

The Bureau of Labor Statistics issued its January jobs report earlier today finding that the unemployment rate dropped for the first time in two months to 6.3% despite recording only 49,000 new jobs created during January.  Since February of 2020, jobs are still 9.9 million lower than they were after seeing a loss of about 22 million jobs during the pandemic.
