Miss: Just 148k New Jobs in September
on Tue, 22 Oct 2013
The Labor Department reported Tuesday that the economy added just 148k new jobs in September, down from a revised 193k jobs added in August. The report, which had been delayed by the government shutdown, was a disappointment. Economists had expected the economy to add over 180k jobs last month. The unemployment dipped a notch to 7.2%, as more Americans left the labor force.
