Friday was the first time in seven years that the US Economy showed a loss of jobs. 33,000 jobs loss is tiny compared to the losses during the Great Recession, but it's not good news either. Some economists blame the speed bump on the severe weather that hit the southern states during the month of September, but it's also a sign that the US economy is struggling to grow and that we may be heading towards a recession. https://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.htm
