Unemployment Remains Unchanged at 9.6 percent in September
There were 14.8 million unemployed people in September, representing no significant change. The number of long-term unemployed people (those out of work for at least 27 weeks) at 6.1 million also did not notably change.
The number of people working part-time for economic reasons rose by 612,000 workers last month to 9.5 million. In the past two months, that figure has grown by 943,000. These people work part-time either because of reduced work hours or inability to find a full-time job.
