    I don't know yet what the BLS numbers will be in comparison to what I found at ADP... but if it is over 200,000 jobs added in August... I'm a damn happy camper!

    CNN preaches doom and gloom on jobs... is it accurate?

    Outlook gloomy for August jobs report

     NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- The stakes are high and the forecast is gloomy, ahead of the August jobs report scheduled to be released Friday by the Labor Department.

    A month ago, that report showed businesses added 163,000 jobs in July. Job gains at that level were the strongest in five months, but still were not robust enough to keep up with population growth. The unemployment rate ticked up to 8.3%.

     Unfortunately, August doesn't look like it fared much better.

    Employers probably added about 120,000 jobs, keeping the unemployment rate at its current level, according to economists surveyed by CNNMoney.
