Today, the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics released an encouraging report that sent the stock market up nearly 1000 points in trading this morning.
“The unemployment rate declined by 1.4 percentage points to 13.3 percent in May, and the number of unemployed persons fell by 2.1 million to 21.0 million,” the report revealed.
