What does October’s banner jobs report tell us?

Clip: 11/02/2018 | 3m 44s

Friday’s jobs report showed a quarter of a million jobs were added to the U.S. economy in October. The unemployment rate remained at its lowest rate in decades. And wages, up 3 percent year over year, grew the most they have since 2009. Despite all the positive metrics, concerns still linger over tariffs and a volatile stock market. Amna Nawaz discusses with Heather Long of the Washington Post.
