The only two sectors showing much strength in terms of job growth in September were employment services (temp help), which added 23,800 jobs, and health care, which added 43,800 jobs. The health care numbers are striking because this seems to be part of an ongoing trend. Health care employment has grown at a rate of 31,400 per month since June, accounting for almost one-third of employment growth over this period. In a very weak labor market, health care jobs are becoming ever more important.
