US jobless numbers fall to six-year low

But new data shows many people who are employed are working in part-time, temporary positions.

    Unemployment in the US has fallen to its lowest level in six years.

    New data released by the US Labour Department shows that just over six percent of US citizens are jobless.

    But not everyone who is employed has a full-time, long-term job.
