The job market continues to improve.
The labor department says employers added 203,000 jobs in November, which was 20,000 more than expected.
The unemployment rate dropped to 7 percent.
However, for the unemployed, many may soon lose their unemployment checks.
The program that expanded benefits during the financial crisis are set to expire and return to pre-recession levels, giving the unemployed six months of payments.
If Congress doesn't extend the program, about a million people will lose their benefits in January.
