Jobless Rate Falls For Blacks, But It's Not Good News Yet

Jobless Rate Falls For Blacks, But It's Not Good News Yet 
  Employment Specialist Louis Holliday, right, helps an applicant file for unemployment at a Georgia Department of Labor career center last month in Atlanta. The jobless rate for African-Americans fell from 13.7 to 12.6 percent in July, but that's still twice the rate for whites.  The labor market continues its recovery, and after a string of bad news, things would seem to be to turning around for African-American workers, too. They're finding more jobs, but at the lower end of the pay scale.
