The July monthly jobs report is out, showing that U.S. employers added 187,000 jobs. The unemployment rate also decreased from 3.6% to 3.5%. This report comes after the federal reserve’s decision to resume interest rate hikes to address inflation and a strong labor market. Meanwhile, the country’s credit rating was downgraded for only the second time. David Stryzewski, CEO of Sound Planning Group, joins OAN’s Alicia Summers to discuss these developments.
