Jobless Rate 9.6 Percent In August; Private Payrolls Up By 67,000 : The Two-Way : NPR

The nation's jobless rate inched up to 9.6% in August from 9.5% in July, the Bureau of Labor Statistics just reported.
Private employers added 67,000 jobs to their payrolls, BLS also said. But a drop in government employment (much of it due to the laying off of temporary Census workers) led to a net decline in jobs of 54,000.
