US Jobs Report - 638,000 Jobs Added in October


What Happened:

  • The US economy added 638,000 million jobs in October and unemployment fell to 6.9%, down from 7.9% in September.

  • The 1% drop in joblessness surprised analysts who had expected about a 0.2% drop. They hope this means that the long-term effects of the pandemic on the economy might not be as bad as predicted.

  • The nation remains down about 10 million jobs since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic.
