Underemployment Falls to 18.9% in April Unemployment falls to 9.7%

Dennis Jacobe, Chief Economist, at the Gallup Poll reports that more than 2 million Americans became fully employed in April, as Gallup's "underemployment" rate fell 1.4 points to 18.9% -- the lowest level for this new measure since Gallup began tracking it in December 2009. While part of this improvement is the result of the normal pickup in hiring at this time of year -- and the addition of temporary census workers -- it is good news both for those becoming fully employed and for the economy as a whole.
