WASHINGTON — Apparel specialty stores and discounters boosted payrolls in October, as the overall economy added 171,000 jobs, a Labor Department report showed Friday.
Despite the uptick in overall jobs, the unemployment rate inched up to 7.9 percent in October from 7.8 percent in September, a sign that more unemployed people entered the job market looking for work. The government measures the unemployment rate by the number of people who are actively searching for jobs.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
