First Time Since April 2009, U.S. Employment Situation Better than in June 1983

Almost a miracle (seasonally adjusted):

Note: U.S. unemployment figures from before the end of the post-Vietnam War recession are distorted by the effects of both wartime and peacetime military conscription practiced between 1940 and 1973. Part of this recent decrease is due to the expiration of extended unemployment benefits on December 28, 2013. Americans have waited over five years for this labor market improvement.
