No Jobs Report, Officials Say Too Short-handed, Blame Shutdown

Posted: Updated:

The government shutdown has claimed another victim, this one being the monthly jobs report.

The Department of Labor confirmed the employment data scheduled to be released at the start of the month will not be sent out.

Officials blamed a short-handed staff and said there simply aren't enough workers to get the information out among other essential duties that must be completed.

The last time a jobs report was delayed happened in 1996 during another government shutdown.

That data came out two weeks later in that case.
