Obama sees latest jobless figures as "encouraging"

WASHINGTON, Nov 5 (BestGrowthStock) – President Barack Obama on
Friday called the latest U.S. unemployment figures “encouraging
news” but said there was still much more work to be done to
boost job creation.

Obama spoke after the government reported a
bigger-than-expected increase in employment in October but not
enough to budge the 9.6 percent jobless rate. Voters unhappy
with the sluggish economy delivered a stinging rebuke to Obama
and his Democrats in Tuesday’s congressional elections.
