August Jobs Report: Economy Adds 201K Jobs, Unemployment Still Under 4 Percent

The U.S. economy added 201,000 jobs in August, while unemployment stayed south of four percent for the second straight month.

The ‘jobs added’ figure beat economists’ expectations while the unemployment rate was a tick higher than expected, according to CNBC.

It’s the fourth time in eight months this year that the economy has added at least 200,000 jobs in a month. The U.S. has created 1.65 million jobs in 2018 so far, and 3.58 million jobs since February 2017, the first full month of the new presidency. The unemployment rate has been 4.1 percent or lower since October 2017.
