No Change in National Unemployment Rate for August

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has issued their August unemployment report, finding no change in the national unemployment rate for August at 3.7%, the same as July.  Only 130,000 new jobs were created in the month, less than had been anticipated, with a substantial part of these new jobs being temporary Census jobs.
