Economists forecast another robust month of job gains.

Employment in the US rose by much less than expected in the month of September, according to a report released by the Labor Department on Friday.

Job gains were noted in healthcare, up 26,000, transportation and warehousing, up 24,000, and construction, up 23,000. Unemployment rates for women (down 0.1), Hispanics (up 0.1), Asians (down 0.1) and African-Americans (down 0.3) showed mixed changes.

Friday's job report confirmed a strengthening job market. With the bigger than expected decrease, the unemployment rate fell to its lowest level since hitting 3.5% in December of 1969. Bond prices fall when yields rise.

Some measures showed the labor market may still have some room for further improvement.

Teen unemployment fell by 0.3 percent to 12.8 percent.
