Eu já fui mais sociável, mas hoje, quanto mais distante eu fico de algumas pessoas, melhor eu me sinto.

Each month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics puts out a report called the "Employment Situation." It's what tells us how many jobs were created in the past month, and what the unemployment rate is.
This month's report is in, and the numbers are strong:
The economy created 248,000 jobs in September. And the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent, the lowest rate since July 2008.
And while we don't put too much stock in any one report, there's a clear trend here.
Check out this month's economic progress.
This month's report was a clear indication of how far we’ve come since the recession, but we've still got more to do. We know that many Americans aren't feeling enough of the benefits of this recovery. That's something President Obama addressed yesterday, when he laid out his plan for a new foundation for America's 21st century economy.
Thanks to the determination of the American people and the decisions of President Obama's administration, our economy is stronger than it's been in years: Businesses have added 10.3 million jobs over 55 straight months, the longest streak on record.
The unemployment rate has fallen to 5.9 percent. That's a number many economists didn't think we'd see for years.
We've still got more to do, but this is news worth sharing: new jobs, a lower unemployment rate, and historic progress.

Being Digital Can't Save Every Ad

I watched the President speak about the economy earlier today -- maybe you did, too.
He talked about how, even though we've rebounded from recession faster than almost every other advanced nation, we've still got a lot of work to do when it comes to rebuilding the middle class.
It's easy to hear that and ask yourself, "What does the President mean when he talks about 'rebuilding the middle class?' Who are those workers? What kind of jobs do they have?"
Well, I'm one of them.
Two years ago, I was a U.S. Army veteran who had been working in the telecommunication industry for 14 years. Then, in August of 2012, I got laid off -- and my family's future suddenly became uncertain. It was a terrifying feeling.
I knew I'd need to adapt. So, with the help of the Veteran Rehabilitation Assistance Program, I enrolled as a full-time student at Anne Arundel Community College. I got my Associate’s Degree in Business Administration, and enrolled in a special Cyber Technology program. That program allowed me to learn a new set of skills that's positioned me at the forefront of the cyber technology field that is under high demand.
Why am I sharing all of this?
Because behind every speech, every chart, and every statistic you hear when the President speaks, there are real people. People like me who are getting back to work, people who are picking up new skills, people who are doing a little bit better than they were a couple years ago.
And even though we've still got a ways to go, I'm confident in the new foundation I've been able to build for myself. And I'm hopeful for the future.
That's just one American's perspective.


 THE WHITE HOUSE 

Have this in front of you when you watch the President today:
Today at 2:15 p.m. Eastern, President Obama will speak to entrepreneurs at Northwestern University about the future of America's 21st century economy.
We wanted to share a first look at what he'll be saying.
Our economy is stronger now than when the President took office during the Great Recession. Businesses are creating more jobs, our manufacturing sector is booming, and our nation is more energy independent than ever before.
But we're not there yet, and to build an economy that works for every American -- not just the privileged few -- we must invest in key economic cornerstones that will create security and opportunity for America’s middle class.
Take a look at where we stand on these essential parts of our economic foundation -- then have these charts on hand when you tune in to the President’s speech at 2:15 p.m. ET to hear how we can continue this progress and ensure a future of growth and prosperity for every American.
