The U.S. labor market took a dip in August, as employers added just 142,000 workers to their payrolls over the month. This marked the lowest monthly job gain so far in 2014, and falls well short of the average monthly growth of 228,000 over the first half of the year. In addition, the prior two months’ change in employment were revised down by a total of 28,000, another sign that the summer job market was not quite as strong as initially reported.
