  • September Jobs Report Disappoints (Oct. 1): According to the Labor Department, the U.S. economy adds only 142,000 jobs in September, below the 173,000 estimated by economists. The unemployment rate remains the same as it was in August, holding steady at 5.1%. The disappointing report will probably prevent the Federal Reserve from raising interest rates this year.
