As CNBC lays out what happened in “Payrolls and wages blow past expectations, flying in the face of Fed rate hikes“:

“Nonfarm payrolls increased 263,000 for the month while the unemployment rate was 3.7%, the Labor Department reported Friday. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been looking for an increase of 200,000 on the payrolls number and 3.7% for the jobless rate.” [emphasis added]
The potential downside?
“The numbers likely will do little to slow a Fed that has been raising interest rates steadily this year to bring down inflation still running near its highest level in more than 40 years…
“Futures tied to the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged following the report, falling more than 400 points as the hot jobs report could make the Fed even more aggressive.” [emphasis added]
