A private survey relased Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2012, shows that U.S. businesses hired fewer workers in September than August, a sign that slow growth may be holding back hiring. Payroll processor ADP said Wednesday that companies added 162,000 jobs last month. That’s below August’s total of 189,000, which was revised lower. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky, File)
