It is less than market expectations, which makes the market more worried about the strength of the US labour market and the overall economy. There are more and more signs that the labour market is slowing. As these figures are announced, people are increasingly worried about the strength of the US economy.

Also, Data released by the Institute for Supply Manufacturing (ISM) on Tuesday showed that manufacturing is shrinking that US manufacturing activity fell to a minimum of more than ten years last month. However, the rate of contraction is not consistent with the recession. US manufacturing activity fell to a minimum of more than ten years last month, raising concerns about the economy. However, other economic data is relatively healthy, especially in the consumer sector.
