The Bureau of Labor Statistics releases its employment situation summary on the first Friday of every month. It's also called the Jobs Report, which is easier to say, and it gives a snapshot of how the U.S. economy did the month before. So the latest report says in October, American employers added 128,000 jobs.
That was better than economists expected. They predicted an 89,000 job gain. And part of the reason for that was the recent strike at General Motors. It officially ended late in October, but it had taken 46,000 auto employees out of the workforce. And economists had thought it was going to be a bigger drag on the jobs market than it ended up being.

The unemployment rate, which is a percentage of American workers who want but don't have a job, increased to 3.6 percent. It was 3.5 percent the month before. But analysts say there's a silver lining to that, because it showed more Americans were looking for work. One area of concern was in manufacturing. The October Jobs Report says there were 36,000 jobs lost in that sector and the BLS commissioner says that was impacted by the auto workers strike. But this doesn't necessarily signal that a recession is on the way.
