The Bureau of Labor Statistics just released its newest jobs report, showing American jobs bounced back after a disappointing March. The U.S. economy added 211,000 jobs in April, and the unemployment rate dropped to 4.4 percent — its lowest level since May 2007.

But no matter what the numbers say, many Americans are still struggling to find a decent job that provides security and stability — or to find any job at all. VICE News went to job fairs in Oklahoma to talk to people who are unemployed or underemployed.
