The Bureau of Labor and Statistics monthly report revealed that there was a significant decline in  legal sector jobs in November despite the positive prediction of many economic analysts early this week. The report cited that the November job growth in the private sector showed a slower uptick than expected. The report also said that around 1,100 jobs in November have been lost in the legal services sector, after a previous industry decline in October. The last gain in the legal sector was recorded in September. The BLS reported that 1,400 new jobs were created in September, but the industry has still failed to produce any significant recovery on job creation from 2009.

The BLS report also mentioned that overall only 39,000 positions were added to the country’s economy in November, a big shortage from the industry prediction of  a 150,000 job increase. Meanwhile, other sectors posted notable developments in terms of job growth. For instance, the temporary help services sector added 40,000 positions, the most of any industry for the time period. The private sector registered an increase of 50,000 jobs and health care jobs also expanded by 19,000. The US unemployment rate is currently at 9.8%, down from 10% in 2009.
