calendar

One of the many side effects of the government shutdown is that there will be no jobless report this week. The Bureau of Labor Statistics is halting the report until Congress reopens the government. Per CNBC:

This website is currently not being updated due to the suspension of Federal government services. The last update to the site was Monday, September 30. During the shutdown period BLS will not collect data, issue reports, or respond to public inquiries. Updates to the site will start again when the Federal government resumes operations. Revised schedules will be issued as they become available.
