      U.S. job growth accelerates in January, but wages lag

      U.S. job growth surged more than expected in January as construction firms and retailers ramped up hiring, which likely gives the Trump administration a head start as it seeks to boost the economy and employment.

      Nonfarm payrolls increased by 227,000 jobs last month, the largest gain in four months, the Labor Department said on Friday. But the unemployment rate rose one-tenth of a percentage point to 4.8 percent and wages rose marginally, suggesting that there was still some slack in the labor market.

      Trump picks opponent of higher minimum wage for Labor Department

      President-elect Donald Trump named fast-food executive Andy Puzder to head the U.S. Department of Labor on Thursday, drawing criticism from labor advocates worried about his opposition to a higher minimum wage and government regulation of the workplace.

      Puzder, chief executive of CKE Restaurants Inc, which operates the Carl's Jr. and Hardee's fast-food chains, has frequently argued in the media that higher minimum wages would hurt workers by forcing restaurants to close.

      E-cigarettes could be used to help combat obesity in smokers trying to quit: study | Reuters

      Researchers in Britain and New Zealand have found a potential new use for electronic cigarettes in smokers who want to give up - controlling appetite and limiting the weight gain that often comes with quitting.

      In a review published in the journal Nicotine & Tobacco Research, the scientists found that it's the nicotine in cigarettes that makes smokers less likely to overeat, and suggested e-cigarettes, which contain nicotine but no tobacco, may help prevent them from eating too much when they quit.

      U.S. job growth slows, clouds case for Fed rate hike

      U.S. employment growth unexpectedly slowed for the third straight month in September and the jobless rate rose, which could make the Federal Reserve more cautious about raising interest rates.

      Nonfarm payrolls rose 156,000, down from a gain of 167,000 jobs in August, the Labor Department said on Friday, while the unemployment rate ticked up a tenth of a percentage point to 5.0 percent as more Americans rejoined the labor force.

      Costco quarterly profit beats on lower fees to Visa

      Warehouse club retailer Costco Wholesale Corp (COST.O) reported a higher-than-expected quarterly profit as it benefited from paying lower fees to credit card partner Visa Inc (V.N) and shoppers spent more on appliances, electronics and hardware.

      The lower payments helped offset falling prices of grocery and fresh food in the quarter, Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti said on a post-earnings call.

      U.S. moves to block massive health insurer deals led by Anthem, Aetna | Reuters

      U.S. antitrust officials on Thursday moved to block an unprecedented consolidation of the national health insurance market, filing suit against Anthem Inc's (ANTM.N) proposed purchase of Cigna Corp (CI.N) and Aetna Inc's (AET.N) planned acquisition of Humana Inc (HUM.N).

      The U.S. Department of Justice said the two multibillion-dollar mergers would reduce competition, raise prices for consumers and stifle innovation if the number of large, national insurers were to fall from five to three.

      Jobless claims, hiring data brighten U.S. labor market view

      U.S. private payrolls increased more than expected in June as small businesses ramped up hiring, and fewer Americans applied for unemployment benefits last week, suggesting a rebound in job growth after May's paltry gains.

      Thursday's reports underscored the economy's strength and supported views that the United States would weather the impact of last month's British referendum to leave the European Union.

      When women have advanced breast cancer, the amount of comfort-oriented care they receive at the end of life may depend on the color of their skin, a small U.S. study suggests.

      Researchers examined data from Medicare, the U.S. government health program for the elderly, for 752 white and 131 black patients with final-stage breast cancer who died from 2007 to 2012.

      Any doubts over about December Fed hike may be swept away | Reuters

      Inflation numbers from the United States on Tuesday could be the provide the final domino in the Federal Reserve's track to raise interest rates next month.

      Earlier in November a robust report on U.S. employment hardened expectations for the Fed's first rate increase in nearly a decade and if prices are shown to be rising steadily those views will likely solidify.
