Staffing firms created 24,500 new jobs in October, up 0.8% from September and 4.1% from October 2014, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Year-to-year staffing job growth averaged 5.3% over the past 12 months.
Non-seasonally adjusted BLS data, which estimate the actual number of jobs in the economy, indicated that temporary help employment increased 2.2% from September to October. Year-to-year, there were 3.7% more staffing employees in October than in the same month last year.

Total U.S. nonfarm payroll employment rose by 271,000 jobs in October (seasonally adjusted), BLS reported. Incorporating revisions for August and September, the data show that monthly job gains averaged 187,000 over the past three months, significantly less than the average of 230,000 for the prior 12 months.

The unemployment rate ticked down slightly to 5.0% in October-down 0.1 percentage points from September and down 0.7 percentage points from a year ago
