Non-farm payroll rose by 194,000 in September and the unemployment rate fell to 4.8%

Employers added just 194,000 jobs in September, according to a monthly snapshot from the Labor Department. That’s even worse than the anemic job gains in August and far below the pace of hiring earlier in the summer, when employers were adding around a million jobs a month.

Non-farm payrolls rose by 943,000 in July and the unemployment rate fell to 5.4%.

After the July jobs report showed the biggest employment increase in almost a year, the Biden administration is urging Americans to get vaccinated to stave off health and economic threats posed by the Delta variant.
