Signs point to tepid September job creation

HP layoffs, increased jobless claims spell worry

After a rough August with just 173,000 jobs added by employers, September only looks to do a little better, according to early signs and forecasts.

A mass 30,000 layoff announcement at Hewlett-Packard skewed Challenger's September count upward, to 58,877 versus August's 41,186.

The layoff count is now heading for the highest total since 2009 with the year-to-date count, at 493,431, already higher than all of last year.

This monthly report counts and categorizes announcements of corporate layoffs based on mass layoff data from state departments of labor.

Total jobless claims climbed by 10,000 to 277,000 in the week ended Sept. 26, above analysts expectations, according to the weekly report from the Labor Department. Initial jobless claims reflect weekly firings.

Analysts predicted jobless claims would rise to 272,000 in the Sept. 26 week. In the week ending Sept. 19, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 267,000, an increase of 3,000 from the previous week's unrevised level of 264,000.

Finally, ADP's call for Friday's September employment report is on the high side but only slightly, at 200,000 for private payroll growth.
Other analysts are not so optimistic, calling for a print closer to 190,000.
