The unemployment picture improved for Americans overall in October, but not for women and Black workers.

While the total unemployment rate eased from 4.8% to 4.6% last month, it rose for women and held steady for Black Americans, the Labor Department reported Friday.

The October jobs report highlights the persistent disparity in labor recovery for women and Black Americans.

"The pandemic recession disproportionately impacted certain groups," said Elise Gould, senior economist at the Economic Policy Institute. "The recovery has yet to reach some of those groups that were hardest hit."

For adult male workers overall, the unemployment rate dipped from 4.7% to 4.3% in October, while the unemployment rate for adult women rose 0.2 percentage points to 4.4%.
