  • Hiring Slows in the U.S. (Sept. 7): Employers in the U.S. hire less people in August then the month before. The U.S. adds 96,000 jobs in August, compared to 141,000 in July and far below the 125,000 which economists expected. The unemployment rate falls from 8.3 in July to 8.1 in August, but that is largely due to more people leaving the work force. The percentage of people in the labor force falls to 63.5 percent, which is the lowest since September 1981.
