The U.S. economy added 134,000 jobs in September, falling under experts’ expectations by 46,000, according to Friday’s jobs numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The unemployment rate fell 0.2 points to 3.7 percent, matching the lowest rate since 1969. Economists expected the rate to drop slightly to 3.8 percent, according to The Wall Street Journal. August’s jobs numbers were revised upward from 201,000 to 270,000.

The September jobs report was released the day after new jobless claims fell back near a five-decade low despite destruction from Hurricane Florence putting many people out of work in North Carolina and South Carolina.
