Employers slashed another 85,000 jobs in December, the government said Friday, a greater than expected number that nonetheless points to the trend of diminishing layoffs.

The report from the Bureau of Labor Statistic also revised November job figures to reflect actual positive growth for the first time since Dec. 2007, the start of the deep U.S. recession. Statisticians said that employers added 4,000 jobs in November, not the 11,000 in job losses reported that month.
