December 4, 2015

The construction sector added 46,000 jobs in November, the biggest increase since January 2014, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The unemployment rate stayed steady at 5 percent.

This job growth was driven by residential construction and an unseasonably warm November across the U.S., reports Bloomberg Business.

The number of jobs added in September and October was revised up by 35,000 total jobs.
