Unemployment in America has fallen to almost 8% during April.

Around 115,000 people were hired during April. Although these figures suggest positivity, the jobs market is still in turmoil as more and more people are reportedly giving up on their job search.

Over 900,000 people reportedly have stopped looking for work.

While new jobs were added, the percentage of people in employment dropped by 0.2% and is now at a 30 year low.
