Black Unemployment Just Dropped to Lowest Ever Level

by Paul Goldberg

The African American unemployment rate has just fallen to 5.4 percent in October – the lowest level on record.

October is the third consecutive month of record-low unemployment.

September’s 5.5 percent matched the record set in August.

The unemployment rate for black men hit a record low of 5.1 percent, down three-tenths from the month prior.

That was lower than the previous record low of 5.2 set in December 1973.

The unemployment rate for black women was 4.8 percent, up two-tenths from September.
