Poll: Will Friday's Report Show Job Growth?


The big buzz word in the market this week is jobs. Everyone wants to know if Friday's jobs report will show a novel trend: Job growth.

The ADP and Challenger reports offered a tepid reading on the jobs front but economists are still expecting to see 5,000 jobs were added to nonfarm payrolls last month, according to the latest Reuters survey.

If the report does show job growth, it would be only the second time in the past two years. The only other time was last November, when 4,000 jobs were added.
