The BLS released its monthly jobs report one day early as tomorrow is the 4th and a holiday.  The report provides something to celebrate with payrolls increasing by 288,000.  This pushes the jobless down to 6.1 percent.

There is much to be learned in the particulars but this time, unexpected news is good news.
