Catherine Rampell at the NY Times Economix offers a Jobs Report Preview

Ms. Rampell suggests three things to look for:

1) The unemployment rate may hit 10 percent.
2) Job losses continue to mount, but more slowly.
3) Hours worked stagnate.
There will be many more interesting details such as the employment-population ratio, part time workers, how many people are unemployed more than 26 weeks (for unemployment benefits), and how many part time workers were hired for seasonal retail jobs - just to mention a few.
