Unemployment rates rose in more than half of U.S. states last month, the latest evidence that hiring remains tepid across the country.

The Labor Department said Friday that rates increased in 26 states. They fell in 12 states and were unchanged in the other 12.

Unemployment also rose in seven of the 11 key swing states in this year's presidential election.

Nationwide, employers added only 96,000 jobs in August. That's below July's gain of 141,000 and the average of 226,000 jobs a month added in the January-March quarter.

The U.S. unemployment rate fell to 8.1 percent last month from 8.3 percent in July. But that was only because many people gave up looking for work. The government only counts people as unemployed if they are actively searching for jobs.

In August, unemployment increased in several competitive states in this year's presidential race.

No. The last 30 months PROVE that the US economy is in a recovery. Are you burying your head in the sand AGAIN?

My head is not buried in sand but my eyes are awake . If we have a boost in anything its a boost in printing money to make it look like a recovery .

I get it now. Not only are they using the WRONG unemployment numbers, but even those WRONG numbers are an illusion caused by printing money. It seems no matter what is done it's pointless to Obama's critics. They will find some way to spin it. lol

After the 47% debacle you have the nerve to call the "left" spin machines. Haha, too funny.

Yeah, Romney says 47% and conservatives start up with, "Well, that's not what he was saying, it is true though, it's just a dustraction, now here's a dist...video of Obama saying something in 1998"

But liberals are the "spin masters"...
