WASHINGTON - A private survey shows that American businesses added 176,000 jobs in August, fewer than in June and July but roughly in line with the monthly average for the year.
The payroll company ADP says professional and business services firms added 50,000 jobs, manufacturers 5,000 and construction firms 4,000.
The ADP figures come one day before the Labor Department will release its jobs report for August. The department's report will capture both private and public-sector job growth for the month.
