Nonfarm Payrolls Seen at 3-Month High
The US economy likely added 450K jobs in October which would be the biggest job growth in 3 months after adding a meagre 194K in September, as the economy recovers from the coronavirus delta hit during the summer period. Still, employment in education likely remained subdued and labour shortages continue to weigh even after federal government-funded unemployment benefits have expired and schools reopened. Some investors believe such shortages could get worse due to the White House's vaccine mandate. With the October reading, employment would be about 4.5 million jobs below its peak in February 2020.
