United States unemployment rate falls to 3.7 pct in September

U.S. Employment Rises Much Less Than Expected In September

Canada as a whole added 229,100 jobs in September of 2017 compared to September 2018.

The unemployment rate declined by 0.2 percentage point to 3.7 percent in September, and the number of unemployed persons decreased by 270,000 to 6.0 million.

"Another solid jobs report; not too hot and not too cold", Kate Warne, investment strategist at Edward Jones told FOX Business.

The figures suggest the job market remains tight - with hiring outpacing labor-force growth and perhaps pushing the economy beyond full employment - though it's yet to spark a significant acceleration in wages.

The highest unemployment rate has been recorded in the Fergana (10 percent), Andijan (9.9 percent) and Surkhandarya (9.9 percent) regions, the lowest rate - in Tashkent (7.8 percent). But with unemployment at levels not seen since Richard Nixon was in the White House, the September report was also sure strengthen the case for the Federal Reserve to continue raising interest rates. The manufacturing sector saw net job losses in last month's report - that's worth watching, as it relates to concerns about tariffs, but it's worth monitoring for broader economic-health concerns as well.

Analysts on average had expected a decline of unemployment to 3.8% in September, however, the statistics exceeded expectations. Job gains in July and August were revised up a combined 87,000 from the original reports. Bond prices fall when yields rise. The annual advance of 2.8 percent matched economist projections for some cooling in the year-over-year rise, as a strong number for September 2017 wages presented a hard comparison.

Melania Trump Bumped by Baby Elephant While on Safari During Africa Trip
Trump was on hand as the US ambassador handed over another 1.4 million books through a USA -funded national reading program. She had pin-pointed promotion of child education, fight against HIV/AIDS and conservation as her pivotal areas of focus.


The last time the United States jobless rate was so low preceded more than a decade of economic pain tied to rising price pressures and efforts to rein them in.

Some measures showed the labor market may still have some room for further improvement. Teen unemployment fell by 0.3 percent to 12.8 percent. Fundamentally, however, I expect robust payroll growth of 205,000 and earnings growth of 2.8 percent year-over-year, which should mean an extra 8 cents an hour for workers.
