The federal government’s monthly jobs report out Friday shows companies hired 315,000 workers in August. The U.S. unemployment rate edged up to 3.7%, but it’s even higher among Black and Hispanic workers. Friday's report reflects a slowdown in hiring, a trend shown earlier in the week in New Jersey-based ADP’s jobs report.
