The department said Friday the 6.5 percent jobless rate for November is the lowest since it hit 6.1 percent in December 2008.

The largest month-over-month job decreases were in leisure and hospitality and financial services.

Job increases were reported in education and health services, manufacturing and trade, transportation and utilities.
