AP: “The unemployment rate fell for the fifth straight month after a surge of January hiring, a promising shift in the nation’s outlook for job growth.”

Reuters: “The continued labor market improvement could be a relief for President Barack Obama who faces a tough re-election.”

Bloomberg: “Employment climbed more than forecast in January and the U.S. jobless rate unexpectedly fell to the lowest in three years, casting doubt on whether the Federal Reserve can wait until 2014 before raising interest rates.”
