Happy July Jobs Friday! The jobs report for July confirmed that the labor market is slowing down compared to last year — but that doesn't mean it was a bad report. About 164,000 jobs were added in July which, ten years into the economic expansion, is still a reasonably healthy number. The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 3.7%.
Today on The Indicator, our friend of the show Martha Gimbel from the Indeed Hiring Lab summarizes the jobs report and answers some listener questions about the labor market.
