Labor Secretary Hilda Solis is commenting on the new unemployment stats saying, “It is a significant jump that took us by surprise in a pleasant way but not nearly enough as 159 thousand jobs were added in the private sector” in October 2010. The unemployment numbers remain the same at 9.6 percent. The black unemployment numbers dropped from 16.1 percent to 15.7 percent and the Hispanic numbers grew a tenth of a percent to 12.6 percent. In the past ten months 1.1 million jobs were added in the private sector.
