Job origination in a US slowed in Aug after a stronger start to
a summer, and a stagnation rate ticked adult from a 16-year
A news Friday from a Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that
a US economy combined 156,000 jobs in August, fewer than
economists had expected. The stagnation rate rose to 4.4% from

lifting seductiveness rates. The Fed meets after this month to decide
either to lift borrowing costs, yet economists don’t expect
it to hike.
