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.
