The U.S. unemployment rate dropped to 3.8 percent in May — the lowest it's been since April 2000.
That's according to the newest data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The bureau says the country added over 220,000 jobs in May, which outlets note is more than some economists expected.
CNN reports the U.S. economy has been growing for nearly nine years — the second-longest streak on record.
