Today's jobless report isn't expected to offer much relief to the nation's 15 million unemployed Americans.

While analysts predict the private sector added 75,000 jobs in September, unemployment is still expected to edge up to 9.7 percent, as more people look for work and more temporary government jobs disappear.

There ARE some encouraging signs.

For the fourth time in five weeks, fewer people applied for unemployment benefits.

Job openings also rose in August for the second-straight month.

Still - many economists expect the job market to stay bleak for quite awhile.
