Eye on hir­ing

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - BUSINESS -

Economists pre­dict hir­ing in the U.S. re­bounded in Novem­ber af­ter fall­ing the pre­vi­ous month.

They ex­pect the La­bor Depart­ment will re­port on Fri­day that non­farm em­ploy­ers added 177,500 jobs in Novem­ber. That would rep­re­sent an in­crease from Oc­to­ber, when the econ­omy added 161,000 jobs. That gain was still big enough to help bring the na­tion’s unem­ploy­ment rate down to 4.9 per­cent from 5 per­cent.
