Companies added 749,000 jobs in U.S.
The firms’s monthly private sector jobs count showed growth of 749,000.
The report, done in conjunction with Moody’s Analytics, comes two days ahead of the more closely watched Labor Department count of nonfarm payrolls growth.
That report is expected to show an addition of 800,000 after August’s 1.37 million, with the unemployment rate projected to fall two-tenths of a point to 8.2%. ■
