U.S. Labor Policy Officials talked about a Bureau of Labor Statistics jobs report showing employment rose by 96,000 in August and unemployment was down to 8.1%. They said the job numbers weren’t enough to alleviate unemployment rates and that the participation rate in the workforce was at a 30-year low.
