WASHINGTON – The U.S. Economy has hit a roadblock in its efforts to recover since the pandemic.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics released the latest jobs report, detailing that employers only added 194,000 jobs in September.
It is the second-straight month where the economy added fewer jobs than expected.
Jobs growth also dramatically slowed down in August.
Despite the disappointment, the unemployment rate dropped .4 percent. It now sits at 4.8 percent.
