The unemployment rate declined to 4.2 percent in September, and total nonfarm payroll employment
changed little (-33,000), the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. A sharp employment
decline in food services and drinking places and below-trend growth in some other industries
likely reflected the impact of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey.
