"The labor market paused in October and most job sectors posted declines," said Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute. "However, leisure and hospitality experienced a gain likely due to the seasonality nature of the industry."
The September total of jobs added was revised down from 28,200 to 25,700.
