U.S. economy added back fewer jobs than expected in November, while the unemployment rate fell further than anticipated to the lowest since February 2020. The unemployment rate fell to 4.2 percent from 4.6 percent.

Despite the solid rehiring throughout the year, labor force participation remains short of pre-pandemic levels. While the share of Americans working or looking for jobs didn’t tick up as expected in September and October, some economists say November’s solid labor force gain could foreshadow further advances in the coming months.
