A Glimmer of Hope on the Employment Front

Hosted by

Yesterday, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said unemployment would stay at what he called "unacceptable" levels for some time to come. Today, President Obama found some good news in the latest labor statistics. Crediting "measures that were necessary even though they were sometimes unpopular," he called March's increase of 162,000 jobs "the best news we've seen on the job front in more than two years."
