NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The economy added 114,000 in September, down from 142,000 in August and not nearly enough to keep pace with population growth.The unemployment rate decreased to 7.8% because the number of self-employed jumped dramatically. With the economy growing so slowly many of these are likely workers laid off during the economic collapse who have established home-based businesses.
