Particularly on the eve of Labor Day weekend, this is a very welcome and indicative jobs report. Welcome because unemployment is at its lowest rate in seven years, and indicative of the continued progress the economy will make based on the foundation President Obama and Congressional Democrats built. We're not yet done working to ensure the economy works for everyone, but make no mistake, this is what progress looks like.
