US adds 130,000 jobs August, dropping below expectations 6 Sep 11:42am US adds 130,000 jobs August, dropping below expectations
Hiring slowed amid trade war as economists expected to add about 160,000 jobs while unemployment rate remained at 3.7% Hiring slowed in the US in August as employers added a lackluster 130,00 new jobs, strengthening arguments that Donald Trump’s trade wars are beginning to hit the US economy.

William McChesney Martin, who ran America’s central bank for almost two decades from 1951 to 1970 said the Federal Reserve was in the position of a “chaperone who has ordered the punch bowl removed just when the party was really warming up”.
