WASHINGTON (AP) — September employment data is finally set to appear Tuesday after being delayed two weeks by the partial government shutdown.
Economists forecast that employers added 180,000 jobs in September, according to FactSet. That would be a slight improvement from August's gain of 169,000. And it would be much better than the average 155,000 jobs a month added from May through August. The unemployment rate is expected to remain at 7.3 percent.
The job market has stumbled in recent months after starting the year with some promise.
The jobs report is carrying less weight than usual because the shutdown has likely slowed growth and hiring. And the September figures are certain to be revised two weeks later, when the government reports on October hiring. Some experts predict October numbers will be disappointing.
