No fewer than 228,000 jobs were added into the economy of the United States of America in November, latest data released by the country’s Labour Department has revealed.

Economists had expected employment to climb by 200,000 jobs compared to the addition of 261,000 jobs originally reported for the previous month.
The report said the unemployment rate came in at 4.1 percent in November, unchanged from October and in line with economist estimates.
Meanwhile, average hourly employee earnings were up by 2.5 percent year-over-year in November, reflecting an acceleration from 2.4 percent in October but below estimates for 2.7 percent growth.
