Monthly Jobs Report Expected to Show Uptick

With only to days to go for the September job report, ADP is already saying the economy added 162,000 private sector jobs the past few weeks.

Most of the jobs come from companies with less than 500 employees and it sounds like it’s going to exceed expectations — economics anticipated the number was going to be closer to 150,000 new jobs.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics will release its official numbers this Friday but the ADP report references an increase of jobs ranging from 110,000 to 120,000.
