The economy continues to strengthen under President Trump after a new report shows the U.S. added 201,000 jobs in August.
The Labor Department released the report Friday, topping analysts estimates of 191,000 jobs.
Meanwhile, the unemployment rate remained at a steady low of 3.9-percent.
Wage growth also reportedly accelerated at the fastest pace since the Great Recession.
Labor Department officials said employment opportunities increased in many sectors, including healthcare, mining and transportation.
Experts believe the latest monthly jobs report will likely keep the fed on track to boost interest rates two more times this year.
