That’s what the Trump labor Department is reporting…..
The numbers are a bit distorted by the end of the GM strike….
Take those numbers away and look at the slow wage growth and some think things aren’t as rosey as it seems….
The return of tens of thousands of striking workers to their jobs at General Motors helped supercharge hiring totals last month.

“I think that this report is a real blockbuster; payrolls smashed expectations,” said Daniel Zhao, senior economist at the career site Glassdoor.
Another 41,000 jobs were added to September and October’s employment totals after revisions. A broader measure of unemployment, which includes part-timers who would prefer full-time jobs and people who are too discouraged to look for work, inched down to 6.9 percent.
Stocks rose following the report, with the S&P 500 up by more the 0.7 percent in early trading.
