This comes after gains of 284,000 in October (revised from 261,000) and 269,000 in September (revised from 315,000). The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 3.7%. The US job market—including wage growth—remains resilient, a sign of continued economic strength. The Federal Reserve will therefore have no choice but to keep raising interest rates, though future hikes should be smaller.
