Underemployment, at 18.8%, is up from 18.6% at the end of August

Unemployment, as measured by Gallup without seasonal adjustment, increased to 10.1% in September -- up sharply from 9.3% in August and 8.9% in July. Much of this increase came during the second half of the month -- the unemployment rate was 9.4% in mid-September -- and therefore is unlikely to be picked up in the government's unemployment report on Friday.

But the Democrats keep "saving or creating jobs" morning, noon and night!
