As unemployed people find part-time, temporary, and seasonal work, the official unemployment rate could decline. However, this does not necessarily mean more people are working at their desired capacity. It will continue to be important to track underemployment to shed light on the true state of the workforce.

So despite the headlines, one must keep in mind the quote from Secretary Geithner:

"[The unemployment rate] is still terribly high and is going to stay unacceptably high for a very long time"
