Government Jobs Report Delayed Due to Shutdown

It's official. The government will not release its key monthly jobs report as originally scheduled Friday, the Department of Labor confirmed Thursday.

Citing a "lapse in funding" amid the government shutdown, Department of Labor spokesman Stephan Barr said the report has not yet been rescheduled for release at a later date.

The only other time the jobs report was delayed was in the previous government shutdown in January 1996, when it was released two weeks late.
