The Labor Department reported today that 227,000 jobs were added last month, a number much larger than expected. This is the first time since early last year that more than 200,000 jobs have been added for three straight months in a row.

While this is good news, the job market is still growing too slowly to absorb the 23.5 million people in the U.S. who are unemployed.
