WHITE HOUSE (AP) -- President Bush says the latest numbers show the economy remains "vibrant and strong."
The new job-market snapshot shows employers boosted payrolls by 110,000, the most in one month since last May. The Labor Department also found the economy actually added 89,000 jobs in August. That marked an improvement from the net loss of 4,000 that the government first estimated.
Bush says the report shows 49 consecutive months of job creation, which he says is the longest streak of uninterrupted job growth "on record for our country."
The president says he understands Americans' ongoing financial concerns, including mortgage payments or affording college tuition. He says Congress can help by keeping taxes low.
