  • US unemployment rate falls to 4.1 per cent, lowest in 17 years

Since the beginning of 2017, the unemployment rate has declined by 0.7 percentage point, and the number of unemployed persons has decreased by 1.1 million.

Non-farm payrolls grew by 261,000 jobs, the most in about three years, but fewer than the 310,000 that economists had expected, the Department of Labor's employment situation report showed.

Service-sector employment, which took a major hit last month due to the hurricanes, contributed to the lion's share of October's jobs growth.

37 million fire extinguishers recalled
According to the CPSC, there have been approximately 391 reports of failed or limited activation or nozzle detachment. Some of them were included in prior recalls in March 2009 and February 2015 , while others were sold more recently.

Additionally, flat average hourly earnings brought annual wage growth to 2.4 percent, a four-tenths payback from the solid gain of the prior month, when the hurricanes prevented many low-wage employees from working.

That was the largest gain since July a year ago, but was below economists' expectations for an increase of 310,000 jobs.

Both the national and provincial unemployment rates rose slightly compared to last month's numbers, but is well below Windsor's increase. The "leisure and hospitality" sector, however, added 106,000 jobs.

More than 40M fire extinguishers that may not work recalled
The U.S. government is recalling nearly 40 million fire extinguishers, for fear that the products may not work in an emergency. Owners should contact Kidde to ask for a replacement and for instructions on how to return recalled models.

September's numbers saw a negative return, given the impact of Hurricanes Harvey, Maria and Irma.

The Federal Open Market Committee did not raise short-term rates following its most recent meeting on November 1.

"The bottom line is that slack in the labor market is receding but the hiring trend is slowing and wage gains remain muted".

Amid swirl of controversy, Democratic power lobbyist Podesta steps down
Trump criticized the news media for largely ignoring the Podesta brothers' ties to the larger Russian Federation investigation. Carlson that his "false and defamatory statements have caused damage and injury to the reputation of Mr.

The strength in the jobs market provides further impetus for the Fed... A tighter labor market should lead to better paychecks and ultimately stoke consumer inflation. Officials have penciled in one more move for 2017 if the economy stays on track, and the Fed has one more meeting scheduled before the end of the year, on December 12-13. And a broad measure of unemployment that includes Americans stuck in part-time jobs or too discouraged to look for work fell to 7.9%, matching its lowest level since 2006.
