ILIA CALDERÓN: According to data from the Labor Department, the U.S. economy created 136.000 new jobs in September, a figure that reduced the unemployment rate to a new low of 3.5 percent, the lowest in 50 years. Even so, there is economic uncertainty due to the trade war between the U.S. and China.

JOSÉ DÍAZ-BALART: The unemployment rate fell to its lowest level in the past 50 years. It was lowered to 3.5% in September, and dropped to 3.9% among Latinos. 136,000 total jobs were added this last month. In spite of the numbers being somewhat below expectations, there are now 108 consecutive months of job growth. It is the longest-ever streak in the employment market. And an encouraging bit of data in the midst of concerns over a potential recession: most of the jobs added were in healthcare, professional services, and business.
