Jobs Report Postponed Due to Gov. Shutdown


The monthly Jobs Report is another victim of the shutdown.

The Department of Labor was set to release the report today, but officials say they're too short-handed to do so.

The last time a jobs report was delayed was back in 1996, during the last government shutdown.

The data came out 2-weeks later.

No word on when or if the report will eventually be released.

Analysts predict the country's unemployment rate for Sept. would be 7.3%
