6:02 am
markets. what are your expectation. >> our expectations it will come around consensus. if you look at trends, unemployment claims, jobless claims near record lows. they have been for a while. all of the employment trends are moving in the right direction. i don't think this jobs report is growing to influence the fed. maria: you don't? >> i think what is going to influence the fed is volatility. if we have heightened volatility from now into the fomc meeting, we don't get a rate hike. if volatility simmers down a little bit, i think we do get a rate -- maria: interesting you think they're watching markets so closely. >> absolutely. maria: dagen, they have enough data in terms of where we are in the economy to make a decision, no. >> unless it is really horrific. unless you have a horrible jobs report that is shockingly bad. goldman sachs in its note, i thought this was interesting, pointed out one thing because i'm a dork and i always go for the most obscure data point, but there was some data from the conference board recently, for
6:03 am
the first time since early 2008, the difference between the people reporting jobs are plentiful versus those reporting that jobs are hard to find was zero. this is really positive sign for a much stronger labor market because since early 08 it has been people have been greater percentage of people have been reporting jobs very hard. maria: you have to believe the jobs market is getting better. we're seeing better numbers every month. only issue is wages and labor participation rate. >> but wages are improving, stubbornly but gradually. look, if it was just about economic data we would have a rate hike but there are more things going on. maria: you think so? i don't know about that. >> you have inflation target. i don't know where that all of sudden became so paramount of importance to the fed. and now this global volatility and you hear in the headlines all the time, a global recession is lurking, whatever that means. but the major economies are expanding.
6:04 am
>> australia is close to recession for the first time in almost a quarter of a century, about 24 years. canada heading into a recession. maria: japan. >> japan. >> brazil. >> any country dependent on commodities. >> right. >> any county dependent, whether australia or brazil is headed in the wrong direction. that goes to maria's point, what would be impact of this commodity bubble bursting on this country? and people need to dig deeper. and into what the impact is going to be here. maria: what is your take? we've been talking about this all week. knock on effect that will result in crash of commodities, has to do with the banks that lent money to the commodities companies. >> right. to your point, our economy is 70% driven by consumer spending. maria: fair point. >> so that is a huge plus. the consumer hasn't spent gasoline dividend. maria: she thinks they will do it in the holiday.
6:05 am
>> i think it is starting to happen but the data will confirm that. but they have been improving savings. maria: 5% savings rate. >> consumer is in excellent shape. our banks are in excellent shape. our economy is in very good shape. maria: dagen, are you safer? do you save. >> i try. maria: i'm a big saver. when i was little girl i'm always saving, saving. my mentality. what i do. >> my husband is a huge safer. is extremely frugal. maria: you're a spender. >> i am a spender but i will say this. i sound like a broken record but your 401(k) plan, because it reduces your gross taxable income, which is critical, particularly with taxes going up, but it takes money right out of your savings account, i mean out of your paycheck, puts it in wherever you would like to put it. maria: so important. >> if you want to buy a house you can borrow from yourself and borrow from the 401(k) plan, pay your interest and comes out
6:06 am
of your paycheck to pay loan back. maria: which i wouldn't recommend but it is all right. >> rather than borrowing cash for down payment from your relatives or somebody else, taking out credit card, taking cash advance on credit card, borrow for 401(k) from down payment. good idea. >> rephrase that for yourself you like to the support the economy? >> yeah. maria: are you saver? >> i like to support the economy. maria: you're a spender. i'm sorry. i'm sorry. i'm just chatting. the so oil this morning is low. we got to talk about oil prices, dagen. they closed higher for the fifth time in six trading sessions yesterday, despite rise in crude this week. labor day gasoline prices are still slated to be the lowest in 11 years, exactly what you've been expecting, dagen. gas is going to go down and that will help the consumer. >> that is exactly what i'm hoping. maria: phil flynn at cme in chicago with all the action this morning. good morning to you, phil. >> good morning, maria. tell you what.
6:07 am
amazing when you get light volume how one headline can really move the market. early this morning oil prices were really going down because of weak know in the stock market. mario's magic was wearing off from talk of qe and concerns about today's jobs report. when we got headline from "wall street journal" those chinese ships actually went into u.s. territorial waters we seemed to bounce off the low right when the headline came out. we were easing back a little bit as we get prepared for jobs. this market continues to be volatile today. maria: phil, thank you. phil flynn, looking at oil here. we will check back. hank, oil a huge story this morning especially ahead of long labor day weekend. do you agree with dagen and her point that something has got to give, consumer saving a lot of money at the gas pump and they are going to spend it. >> no question. timing couldn't be better, back to fall and school. holidays. reformulation of gasoline. that will bring prices down as well.
6:08 am
so i think, since when was low oil considered bad? only in the past 10 years. on again. off again. >> john hoffmeister was on the show. we got a lot of twitter reaction. maria: former president of shell. >> he was talking about the need for higher oil prices to support these energy companies that are heavily leveraged, to prevent job losses in this, like, a dozen states around the country. people are like, is he really saying that he, you know, because that is not good for consumers. higher oil prices in general. so next time oil is at 100 bucks a barrel, you better advocate for he lower prices for us. >> it is not good for businesses other than that small energy sector, i shouldn't say small. maria: my favorite comment this week was from iran oil minister, okay? or was it finance minister? oil minister in iran said, oil
6:09 am
prices at 70 to $80 a barrel is fair. i'm sure you think so. but will it ever go back to that? i don't know. >> good luck getting back to that level. maria: take a break. coming up cracking a very important oil threshold an pledged loyalty to the party but has the party pledged loyalty to donald trump? that's next. headlines topping "the wall street journal," putin pitches for foreign investment in russia's far east. would you put your money russia's far east. russia is turning to china to develop resource rich season. andy murray ignoring open's endorsement deal with underarmor and wearing his own sneakers. facebook advancing bizarre ambitions. making groups easier to use as trading forum. coming right back with more on all of that. ♪ can a business have a mind?

6:12 am
6:13 am
>> best way for the republicans to win is if i win the nomination, and go directly against whoever they happen to put up. and for that reason, i have signed the pledge. maria: yes, that happened yesterday afternoon. republican frontrunner donald trump finally deciding to sign the republican national committee pledge, swearing off a third party run if he does not win the party's nomination. with his signature all 17 gop presidential candidates signed pledge to support vent wall candidate, but this move may bring with it backlash from biggest supporters. so far trump painted himself as anti-establishment candidate but signing this pledge may complicate that image. joining us "fortune" senior writer mimi easton. good morning to you. >> great to be here, maria. maria: your observation on
6:14 am
signing that pledge. >> donald trump is casino builder, right? maria, let's talk bets here. rnc making a bet they can keep this guy inside of tent, force of nature they have been flummoxed what to do with. they don't want a replay of 1992 when ross perot ran as spoiler and bill clinton got presidency with 42% of the vote against george h.w. bush. that they're worried about that. a bet on donald trump's part that he can get the nomination of this party despite a history that does not favor outsiders. he would have to defy history. >> nina, dagen mcdowell, so good to see you. there is talk whether this hurts donald trump because now he is in the fold of the republican party. and, what was helping him is that he was defying everything about running for public office. this brings him closer to a traditional politician, yes or no? >> i don't think it hurts him.
6:15 am
he is still donald trump. he is still, the rich guy who comes off as blue-collar. he is still the guy who is able to define his opponents so blythely with comments about jeb sh le, o he jusa low-ergyuy. hes habeenble reay risen thpollbaseon w hes. i n't ink is wl ha ythi to wit cou hel m wi sompeop whowho ve qstiod hiloyay to e pty bore at. >> at what point in the cycle does donald trump have to articulate his plan and move away from these sound bites that are capturing some of his audience? but so far there has been no articulation of details? >> that is what is so interesting about him. he has gotten away with not having details. effect much that make it look like he is standing up to washington paralysis, right? makes him look like he can actual wave a wand to get things done. you're right, this will come to an end.
6:16 am
there will be more scrutiny about his positions in debes foexplkeep i time, and say, 2008 cycle, you have rudy giuliani at 30%. you had fred thompson at 15% and nominee, mccain was way down, distant fourth. so you can't just rely on polls right now. maria: nina, who do you think has articulated that ireconomic vision best out of all of the candidates? i'm talking right and left? >> boy, that is a good question, maria. i think, i think all of them have kind of struggled with that. maria:. love appeal. started off with centrist stance, standing up to unions. and drifted to the right in an attempt to hopefully capture iowa. yet he hasn't done well in iowa. i think all of them are struggling on how to articulate
6:17 am
something that really, plays to people. keep in mind, donald trump is, he a populist, right? so he can, he can say, you need higher taxes on these hedge fund guys at the same time he wants to build a wall against illegal immigrants coming in. >> he struggled in the interview with hugh hewitt yesterday. hugh was putting pressure on him. maria: foreign policy. >> to talk about leaders of these various care organizations. maria: but is he supposed to know every extremist name at this point? that is a little credit here. >> you actually are, because he lacks in foreign policy issues. at least know names, leader of hezbollah and hamas. you know who did well? or better? carly fiorina. maria: she is terrific. >> carly's really done well if the polls. she knows what she is talking about. i interviewed her at length. did first interview on foreign policy she pointed out she knows
6:18 am
some leaders, she dealt with putin. dealt with, knows leaders in the middle east. she knows bebe. around shy likes to point that out. that will come across as strength in upcoming debate next week. maria: she is doing great, really. really articulated policy solutions as well. nina, good to see you. thanks so much. >> good to see you. maria: nina easton joining us from fortune. you may think twice before biting into next grilled cheese sandwich. kraft expanding recall recall of american cheese singles. tell you about it. back in a moment. you are looking at two airplane fuel gauges.
6:19 am
can you spot the difference? no? you can't see that? alright, let's take a look. the one on the right just used 1% less fuel than the one on the left. now, to an airline, a 1% difference could save enough fuel to power hundreds of flights around the world. hey, look at that. pyramids. so you see, two things that are exactly the same have never been more different. ge software. get connected. get insights. get optimized.
6:20 am
6:21 am
maria: welcome back. wall street gearing up for latest employment data.
6:22 am
economists expecting 220 thou knew -- 220,000 new jobs. he is calling below the consensus. bank of america, michelle meyer. >> thanks for having me. maria: how would you characterize the job market. what would you expectation for the jobs report. >> looking for 200,000 in headline non-farm payroll, 5.2% unemployment rate which i think is a pretty good report. 200,000 job growth a month is double what you need to break even given population growth. remember labor force has shrunk. so you don't need to see as many jobs to keep up with the change in the population. maria: why do you think it has been so hard to move needle on wages? why do you think the participation in the employment market is so low? >> both of those are critical questions. i wish i had easy answer. unfortunately i don't. i think on wages i do have something to say for the pent up wage deflation argument.
6:23 am
wages are so sticky during the downturn. don't have to increase wages as quickly. if that is true, perhaps you need unemployment rate lower. before you really start to see wages pick up. >> on the participation rate, really a balance between demographics, and then, disenfranchised workers. maria: demographics are people are aging out of the market. >> deciding. i have enough savings. i don't need this versus, i just can't get a job anymore and i'm frustrated. >> those demographics are strong. if you control for the business cycle and only allow demographics have kicked in, you would have seen drop in participation rate regardless. you can't fight demographic factors. i think key, did this recession force people into retirement a little bit earlier than they would have been otherwise? so it accelerated in
6:24 am
participation. >> i will ask something maria has been on top of not just this week but last several weeks. the downturn in energy price, hard-hit energy companies, layoffs all year long, what will be the impact on the job market and our economy, particularly with all of these commodity-centric countries, really flat on their backs because of the commodity collapse? >> sure. so drop in energy prices certainly created winners and losers. losers being energy producing companies. and, countries and so, states in the u.s. -- like texas. then you have particularly winners on other end which are consumers realizing lower gasoline prices and should be benefiting from a pickup in their purchasing power. in terms of drag to the labor market in terms of energy companies shed workers. we've been seeing impact now through the entire year. started in around january, started seeing cuts in order of 10 to 15,000 a month from energy
6:25 am
related jobs. maria: is there further knock-on effect when you look at some of the leveraged players out there? that is really what we're talking about. we're trying to zero in how big of an impact this will have? >> there is uncertainty could there be systemic issue in sense of financing that has been involved. seems like there could be spillover, certainly, doesn't feel the same way as the markets crisis and that, housing bubble popped and that hit the average person. it hit their household balance sheet. you don't have the same linkage with the drop in energy prices. maria: all right. are you recommending that people look at this market and basically buy into it based on the fundamental outlook? i know that is not what you're telling client, but in terms of what you are telling clients with this volatility? >> i will leave that to the -- he is awesome and make that call. i think, from my perspective i think you should look past some
6:26 am
of the swings in the markets and look what is happening in the underlying economy. that's where you are still seeing further emproblem. and healing. i think fed will see that. maria: michelle. good to have you on the show. michelle meyer, bank of america merrill lynch. coming up. stunning ruling in favor of tom brady. that is up next. ♪

6:30 am
unemployment rate is down to 5.2%. those numbers have been two hours. features indicate a lower opening for broader averages. i want to say sharply lower opening, but in this environment i don't know if that is sharply lower with stocks down 185 points this morning. also weaker in your. britain, france, germany better than 1% throughout the morning. >> the best way for the republicans to win is if i win the nomination and go directly against whoever they happen to put up and for that reason i have signed the pledge. maria: yes, he has done it. donald trump really not a third-party bid by signing a pledge not to do so. a big role in trump's decision. fox business reporting when convinced trump to sign the rnc loyalty pledge.

6:33 am
$3 billion to try to put together a case in tom brady that the judge found there is no notice that could ever be the basis for any type of discipline. the other problem was the hearing procedures themselves were fundamentally unfair, that we were deprived of the evidence we needed, deprived of the witnesses we needed. there is no real independent report. all of these points of the judge to conclude that this was an arbitration which did not meet the legal test. >> do you think this is more about the nfl and goodell santos had all this negative press. we have to look as tough as nails and we are not going to take anything said tom brady takes the fall on this one. >> i can't speak for why they do this. if i was on the weak side, i would wonder why is this a good
6:34 am
idea for folk all? why do we want a system like this where instead of talking about the stars of the game the opening day fans have to be suggested to legal issues and yet the nfl process that the only link i won't negotiate a fair system of discipline. if we did that, you wouldn't hear anything about this. maria: how concerned are you, jeffrey, about the appeal from roger goodell. >> i have no more concerns than it was about the legal posits who said we could win this case. we know if this is a case where the arbitration was legally and fundamentally wrong. i have no reason to conclude exactly the same thing. maria: the reaction has been incredible.

7:04 am
average of 50,000 jobs. but the consensus at 220 that suggest the number would come in 170, 180. from a fans did we know historically over the course of the next two jobs report, a look at revised away. we will end up at two december, because the act cavalierly enough to say the number missed by 50 but we know it's revised away. we hiked anyways? >> why would they put so much in the number? >> this is the last big number the federal get on september 16th and 17th. the optics here are important. the fed has told us and fischer reiterated. we completely.
7:05 am
we know that number is going to be revised over the next two months. we will hike anyway. dagen: at that number to not live in september and was in december. i skipped the joker because there's no press conference so i think the first time they make a move they will do it when you have immediate for jay elliott can come out and explain their reasoning. >> that is exactly your point. the fed has the dual mandate. the labor data today will be soft. today's numbers out that the fed has to make a pretty good case two weeks from now provided the go-ahead at hike. one will be unemployment rate ever talk about the caveat with the low job participation. that was say something into the hourly wages. everybody wants the number to take a pioneer. if the number is low the same people who didn't answer the phone and gave them a low number

out what they think. i want those perspective the first tell us what you've learned. >> they look past the recent volatility to the end of the year, as far as 2016 and they see about 10% from here, the median estimate for the 2150 up about 10%. so one thing they are looking at is the evaluation of market right now. we see a better valuation than we were seeing before. for instance, the s&p selling at 14.5 times earnings estimate which is slightly below average. another interesting point is a lot of strategists look at earning yield. the inverse of the price to earnings ratio is 6% right now in the high side especially compared to bond yields about four percentage points that is very high.
7:08 am
comparing stocks to bonds is a meaningful indicator that suggest the market can go to. train to the you spoke with expect the market to be hired by year-end. do you agree with that? >> absolutely. full disclosure my boss might have the survey. but jack is exactly on the point. as in strong, labor market regardless of what has happened today is strong. we are big model guys as well in our calculation is the stocks are 70% undervalued relative to treasuries. we haven't seen bubbles this low since march of 09 or last.tober, the summer of 2011. we think this is a good inflection point for longer-term investors. the issue is not domestic fundamentals which we think are pretty good. that is what is created 12%

correction. >> the so-called fed model when you appeal stock fund bonds is what bonds are doing. they are sending a signal. jeremy grantham, one of my favorite says dotson three years couldn't care less what bonds were paying. maria: kodak said. that's a very good accent. [laughter] >> okay, the point is bonds can go up and heard the outlook so i wouldn't put too much in it but right now to suggest stocks are better. dagen: the federal reserve is watching for market volatility. you have nothing to fear and panic in the treasury market that you've seen in the stock market. is that a sign that there's some comment there? corners of the credit market has been very sharp.
7:10 am

8:01 am
for quote some further improvement in the labor market before raising rates how much more improvement is needed want to bring in john brady r.j. o'brien managing director from cme, john what is the magic number are you expecting the fed to i raise rates in a week and a half? >> they should raise rates in a week and 1/2 challenge with this number it could further erode, or at least test fed credibility i think the fed wanting to move away from zero balance last six months always find a reason not to answer your question, market 215,000 nonfarm payroll 5.2% unemployment rate the august number just happens to be most heavily revised nonfarm payroll number in the calendar year, it tends to come in 40,000 soft over next two months gets prefaced about 06,000, so, a problem for the fed today, is if this number nonfarm number is close to 150,000 because traders policy
8:02 am
makers say okay will it beat 200,000 let's say by october? >> the revision, if unemployment rate upto my recollection the fed also got a challenge say maybe we make it october fed credibility is most important trade today. >> that is exactly what he we were told the beginning of the program we've got a history of august underperforming and that is the question, we bring in master here charles payne, charles what are you looking at with in number how important? >> obviously very important, you know the idea the fed credibility is on the line right now, i don't know that they have a lot of credibility, i am quite frank even notion central banks i know keith mccullough is different dissident do i agree look what happened yesterday in europe ecb, and mario draghi, these guys can't get it done as much as we've complained, criticized, points fine, at china trying to manipulate their markets four
8:03 am
trillion dollars out of ether sort of manipulation is it working mechanisms we use judge ruled against yavl about procured of it all procedure how we are doing this central banks inability of money to get to main street in my mind an atrocity this number, by the way, idea 200,000 is a good number anything below that mediocrity is rieldz our economy is -- >> totally. >> our should we farther along no, i am glad the congressional bank pajama party is about to end janet yellen is going to put clothes on go to work all other central bankers we will i stand lone if we start tightening us and u.k. that is it. maria: you are expecting a tightening you bet me 20 bucks fed is going to raise. >> i would never bet you 20, i bet john -- >> i bet -- >> i am on that bet. >> i lost the brady bet, by the way. >> i think the big thing fed has been talking about, for you know, really the whole
8:04 am
past year is that it is not just about headlined number it is wages, it is going to be about labor participation. and i think that is why they truly have not raised rates the concern has been around, the size of the workforce is shrinking people are not participating, in the workforce, so we need to see those numbers start moving the right direction. >> when thinking about a rate increase think about europe they hiked said oops we messed up then they eased again, the fed does not wanted you think janet yellen concerned now major wakes up gets out of bed would have to get back in bed that would not be good so once they start this path as low as it is going to be want to stay on pathogen. >> i gis you are saying 5.2% unemployment rate if combined with people coming back into the job market, and maybe a 230, 40, 50 number might solidify -- >> i was thinking about this
8:05 am
this morning i thought of you. because what has gone on since 2008 really, people who disagree with thet's policies have disagreed with what washington is doing, you have been a loser if you bet based on political leanings people who don't like president talk down what is going on in this country if you bet along side of that thinking, you've lot of out. >> i had a radio show kfi based on california orange county a lot of conservatives i always said guys please do yourself a favor, this disassociate dislike for president policies for the fact that a great american companies on sale right oi now. >> by the way, also, rallies play a lot of this, china is so important now first leg of the rally was really the global economy coming to the rescue particularly china why caterpillar did so well apple did so well this rally i wouldn't skai a rally because of president obama, by the way, when minions talk about that you hear to your point
8:06 am
people say what is going on in this country wages at all-time low percentage gdp but profits are all-time high, half those profits came from outside of the -- >> i got to pushing back on you now, you are telling me profits all i am a high the performance second quarter up .04%. squat. no growth no growth. >> energy, though i think significantly more, energy impact on energy is has been, it is like someone dropped a nuclear weapon on them, take that out we are up, pretty good. >> made connected yes, stocks have gone up, profits have gone up, revenues have not kept pace. >> one of the things profits have gone up because companies have been holding the line on wage increases, wages we can't to see go up labor share of gdp, has been shrinking, in recent years, that concerns a lot of investors, because some point that is going to reverse, revenues have to keep
8:07 am
pace. >> and they blame obamacare speaking about that. >> being of course. >> i am just saying. >> obamacare -- >> that is the point i think joanie -- i was asking last nights on the show is this indeed the new paradigm shift, you know we saw productivity numbers this week ago ag and productivity miracle for me euphemism we could fiery people not hire them back that is productivity miracle. >> companies are hiring different so jack to your point that they he will held down wages they have also held on hiring that is why not seeing robust you know months of 300,000, you know or more, in job creation it is because employers are contenders, we make that investment, do we really add, and so, focused on that, cutting costs, trying to drive you know, obviously profits to the bottom line but top line revenues are not grg as much. >> you know the question i am going to have for you ask you every month, where are the jobs, so that is what i know our viewers want to know john brady back to you a second
8:08 am
bring up what charles said energy a key sector to keep an eye on oil industry, hammered by low prices, we've been debating on this set now for weeks, the knockon effect of the sell-off in commodities you are you spepg being noon being noon being noon febt to the economy oil 46 dollars probability means more job cuts. >> that is right -- maria, maybe some job cuts in the center of the country but keep in mind as oil has been volatile it was extremely volatile this week volatility moved higher in most front month oil contracts the story i gos that some of the builds in texas oklahoma not as strong as one would think global a demand continues to out strip, globe supply by 2.2 million barrels a day, and our new best friends in iran want glob crude oil close to 70, to
8:09 am
80 dollars a barrel if that happens hiring would reverse we could see hiring start to resurface again, in the plain states the places like that. >> i think you make a great point we said earlier iranian oil minister yesterday said that he thinks 70 to 80 dollar a barrel oil is fair. >> -- i bet do you. >> ready to come only as much as 600, million barrels day. >> 08 is fair charles, we don't wish a doubling in oil prices just for job creation in one industry 70% of the economy ask is consumer driven every single one of us benefit from lower oil and gas prices. >> including those paenz. >> yes crucial point one thing in jobs errors manufacturing is going to take hit a the rest of the world is not buying from us services will do better because that is the domestic, oil helps manufacturing, she helps manufacturing it is a boon to area of the economy that needs help. >> big time we know you have
8:10 am
to get back to desk for number out in 20 minutes we appreciate your time, john. >> thanks maria thanks for having us. >> john brady in chicago coming up waiting for latest read on labor markets a big number the wage numbers something i know charles payne has an opinion on going to talk about that joanie is going to tell us where in this economy are we seeing companies hire? we will be back. ♪ ♪

[laughing] i watch him cook, 'cause when i grow up, i want to be a cook too. we have the same faces, like this. dad is the one, when you fall that picks you up. that unconditional sense of presence and um, reassurance, is really what makes him my father. the unemployment numbers what they say in about 15 minutes core part salaries top concern for the federal reserve sluggish rise in wages july jobs' report found the rise in hourly pay has been slowing, charles today's report could prohibit whether the slowdown
8:14 am
is mom tarry blip or beginning of a sluggish trend what do you see as the reason behind sluggishness for wages. >> i think a couple things we see, like extraordinarily high job openings, you've got a tepid people working still very tepid high skills might leave one job demand higher salary somewhere else not like normally would there is the thing talking about more and more that midskill level, not -- you know not necessarily college degree not necessarily high school, that is another problem as well, so you combine all those things, and the fact that employers still have luxury of being delivered on hiring process that is what we get i think. >> isn't that the issue, companies can and want to hire, workers but they don't have skill set. >> that is required, so where are the jobs viewers want to know who is hiring who isn't. >> there are jobs out there across the board. different industries different sectors but the hottest
8:15 am
certainly technology, you do have to have a very specific skill set and experience, you know, software developers, application developers programmers, analysts rolls are in such strong demand right now everything involving like big data analyzing big data some of the hottest jobs out there, and skills that are in demand. but then on the other side there is also administrative assistants coming back, we are seeing a surge of that, retail workers, that we have heard layoffs recently there is a lot of retail jobs out there, so it -- you know there is a lot happening, in many different sectors. >> one big issue with tech though think how many jobs exist, one favorite example facebook, market value 250 billion, 10,000 employees, that is the new that is the new economy, old economy ge, market cap 250 billion, 300,000 employees versus 10,000, so this change in the economy is progress it is good
8:16 am
going to happen but going to be a lot of dislocations in the process. >> the workforce looking different that shift seeing companies are hiring differently sometimes may only the want that contract worker to come in and do a project, or we're seeing people, that want to work more, on kind of what they are saying the gig economy, the on demand economy could really change the way the workforce looks. >> you do see the minutes paid by giant retailers going up that is going to continue to trickle through next couple years the gap mcdonald's -- >> you know. >> -- dagen, higher than actually federal minimum wage fairly low but definitely going up several dollars. >> social media has been really big factor in driving that up has to do with customer service you will see that people are hiring more customer service reps paying
8:17 am
trailer workers on front lines more, because if one has a bad experiencing they are out there -- >> hire minimum wage that is the thing that you are -- >> i hope not. >> minimum, that big companies pay, it will start showing up in numbers absolutely. >> i am saying if minute wage if a company goes from paying an employee 725, to 15 dollars. >> that is not going straight to 15 there is no way, listen -- >> cut jobs, guys you know that. >> first cut hours mall wart just did that. >> then cut jobs. >> walmart says raising wages a month later we have got to start cutting hours after that they got to start cutting jobs that even -- >> you snow. >> making it work. >> pays better doing very, very well part of the reason customer service as well -- >> that is why a lot of companies paying people more because they can't keep them, and they need better customer service people tweet about the
8:18 am
lousy service and it ends up hurting the business. >> you are right, social media, impact, jobs report minutes away we will see if numbers confirm what we are talking about a blockbuster month? how will it pay play into fed plan for rate hikes -- usually an under performer expect weaker-than-expected numbers all-star panel weighs in on jobs, next. so you're a small business expert from at&t? yeah, give me a problem and i've got the solution. well, we have 30 years of customer records. our cloud can keep them safe and accessible anywhere. my drivers don't have time to fill out forms. tablets. keep it all digital. we're looking to double our deliveries. our fleet apps will find the fastest route. oh, and your boysenberry apple scones smell about done. ahh, you're good. i like to bake. add new business services with at&t and get up to $500 in total savings.

not the other way around. maria: welcome back on watch the minutes away from august jobs' report a decision in less than two weeks by federal reserve will fed ray of rates how much looking at the jobs' report in making that decision, steve from heritage foundation joins is steve could today's jobs' report be factor.
8:22 am
>> i think fed is 50-50 when rates go up or not, by the way, i am very much in favor of a rate increase regardless what happens with jobs number i think it could help the economy, i just wanted to add one quick thing, i was listening to your fascinating conversation you guys just had you know charles payne is exactly right. when i talk to employers around country maria you know what they say biggest problem is right now finding the right employees finding you know, amazing thing here we have you know millions of people out of the workforce can't find a job, but it is this skills mismatch maybe the biggest single problem in the economy, part of it you know kids are graduating from college, with sociology degrees mob wants it. >> h-- nobody wants it. >> how do you get the training to thrive. >> probably, implode educational system to be quite frank, jobs how many for eners, i am not trying to be -- trying to disfor eners how
8:23 am
many graduate from american universities every single year with amazing degrees, donald trump, gos bag to my question first place why are not we graduating high school kids who should be filling those spots in the first place. >> the survey now and then a supplemental, that is not long ago what had what are was toughest things advanced math skills number two pink unctuali. >> this is why let me say one thing it is important, this is why raising the minimum wage is such a terrible idea because what are minute wage jobs vast majority starter jobs raise hand if first minute wage mine 2.so an hour working in a warehouse what you learn charles maria on first jobs, is punctuality how to be nice show up in time, all of that stuff those job skills that kids are not learning a big problem.
8:24 am
>> i have to add one of the things we are seeing with customers fat monday maybe fortune 1,000, 500, they are now recruiting at high school level. going into high schools telling them, here are the jobs where they are on in the the future you need to get degrees in science math, and engineering, they changed it for kids consulting firms they are so concerned, that they are not going to have the talent when they need to hire them, recruiting at much lower grade level. >> that could change educational system if you -- change the thinking of teenagers about how much am i willing to pay, for an education, based on what i am going to get paid, when i graduate. >> the basics like steve was saying having kids learn getting in on time doing -- >> you have to learn by experience, my first job. >> my first job i got fired, i mean -- fired from some -- >> kleinfeld departments my

8:29 am
we're expecting to see the market open down about 125 pointsment we should point out, charles payne, this is off the weaker levels the morning. we have been down almost 200 earlier, but this is an important jobs number. charles: obviously. and how they interpret it, we'll go back and forth. we'll have more than one interpretation. the fed meetings, the markets go up and down and a lot of people play catchup. >> and we'll ask the real number. market turmoil has to play into the fed's decision as well as the real number. dagen: i think that anything bad is bad for the markets. higher thinking of investors is skewed toward a global recession. it means-- . charles: i agree a thousand percent. >> and june, july, wages, trying to look at labor participation rate. are we see more people into the work force, there's a lot to
8:30 am
dig into, more than just the headline number. maria: and the wages have been stagnant for so long. we're expecting to see a movement in wages as well as the labor participation right. we've got peter barnes on the scene and he's got the number. >> nonfarm payrolls rose 173,000 new jobs in august, below expectations, up 173, below expectations, but the unemployment rate fell to 5.1%, a bigger decline than expected and the lowest level since march of 2008, seven and a half years ago. there were significant revisions up for june and july, a total of 44,000 more new jobs than previously reported and the unemployment rate falling for the right reasons. the labor force was steady and more people found work. wages took a healthy jump last month, rising 0.3% to $25.09 an hour, but still up only about 2% year over year.
8:31 am
average hourly work week rose over 36 hours. and 62,000, leisure and hospitality, plus 33,000. and state and local education jobs as the school year kicked in, and professional and businesses services up 33,000. check the last month that looked like they could have been affected by the economic turmoil here and overseas. manufacturing fell by 17,000 jobs, maybe because the high dollar hurting exports, mining and logging, which includes oil production down 10,000 jobs. retailers added just 11,000 jobs last month and that was a big slowdown from previous months. construction was basically flat. the u-6, the big picture look at the unemployment jobs, the jobs market, 10.3%, the lowest since june 2008. so, that slowly grinding down.
8:32 am
maria. maria: thanks very much, peter barnes with the latest numbers there. 173,000 jobs added in august. you were right on, that it was going to be below expectations. >> i think this was 250. and you add that to wage growth. not huge, but about the eoe eth- better than recently. if in fact this is going to decide the fed, this is a raise the rates number. >> is peter still there. maria: peter barnes, are you still with us? >> yes. >> the 173, you're saying that the private sector only created 150,000 jobs last month? >> that's right, charles. 33,000 jobs mostly in government, mostly state and local government hiring for the start of the school year. maria: let me bring in steve cortez founder of vara cruz, what's your reaction this morning? >> very underwhelmed.
8:33 am
i'm a product of the 1980's, back then 500,000 jobs were added and we were a much smaller country. is there an improving labor market? yes, at an absolutely snail's pace. it's nice that the wages are picking up we're only at a 2% club. in a year of recovery we should be at 4%. health care and education skyrocketing and 2% is not allowing them to participate in the american dream on main street. maria: we had been down 180 earlier and down to 120. the market improved the last couple of hours or so. what is your reaction to this report? >> it's tricky here, my guess is stocks, i'm generally bearish because i'm skeptical on global growth. i think the u.s. for a long time has been atlas carrying the globe on its shoulders.
8:34 am
whether atlas will shrug-- i do not believe in this environment that the fed can jump the rating rate and that might help equities for the near term. dagen: on hold for how long. the expectation has been they're going to raise in september. they can wait for december, several more jobs report or as jack was and talking about all morning the revisions to this report and we'll clearly see. peter noted 44,000 extra jobs added in the month of july and june, so revisions there, better there than originally reported. maria: and what does the report say where the jobs are? >> when you look at that, i'm surprised there are not more jobs in the professional and business service sector. that number is low, so-- >> that's been a place of hiring. >> yeah, that was a significantly low number. i would expect with revisions next month that we see that number bump back up because those are really where the jobs are at. you know, retail again, has been a little bit stronger, so
8:35 am
the retail only came in 11,000. so, you know, what is surprising to me is that we didn't see more construction jobs this month. you know, the housing numbers have been so strong. you hear the craze with, you know, home depot and lowe's and the home improvements projects and people are back into investing in their homes. new home sales is up. i'm surprised even some from a commercial standpoint we didn't see more construction jobs added. to me, the most interesting thing in this report is that 196,000 people entered back into the work force, so, just about 200,000 people participating again. and then unemployment went down, it was up at like 8.2 million unemployed people and we saw that come down by 237,000 people. so, those are two factors, less people with unemployment and more people participating, which is really driving that unemployment rate down.
8:36 am
dagen: it came down for the right reason. >> for the right reason this time, really shall the first time that's happened in a long time. maria: charles payne, how do you feel. charles: the number came out and the dow didn't move. maria: now we're back down. charles: it's a tight range, reinterpretation, reinterpretation, we know the history of these things. the federal reserve to make a policy decision on a hunch that these numbers are going to be significantly revised higher, i just don't think that's going to happen. if it does, and back to dagen's point. i think the stock market wants to see good news, we want to see the rate hike for the right reasons and that the u.s. economy is chugging along. i think that it can handle 25 basis points, not for wall street because america-- >> i think if it doesn't raise this year, i think the market sells off. dagen: i totally agree with that. i think that the federal reserve, if it raises, it will
8:37 am
raise because, hopefully, the economy is strong enough to handle it because it needs it because of an up tick inflation and i think that if they don't, i think that katie bar the door, because it would send the signal that the economy is in much worse shape. maybe not in september, but certainly by the end of the year. maria: yeah, yeah. dagen: it's a $20 bet. >> maria, you know what the 10-year bond is doing. maria: we're going to see that, nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange, looking at the fend funds rate and in terms of equities we're back at the lows. nicole: that's right. the dow futures down 191 points near the lows of the morning. we're looking at the 10-year bond, 2.13% and i just checked, fed funds futures to try and get an indication of what the futures traders are betting on. interestingly enough, maria, for the month of september, that 16th, 17th meeting, originally this morning at 5 a.m. it was 27 it%. that has since bounced to 19%
8:38 am
for september are to the october, a possibility of a hike, 36%, and so, obviously, the bet continues to be for the december meeting, that 53%. dagen made a great point earlier citing that the october meeting didn't have the press conference following so it was less likely then and that may be true as well the and the other thing that's coming into play now is 25 basis points versus 50 basis points and if they do that in december will they actually do 50 and give a bigger jump? that will be another topic of conversation as well. maria: that's the lows of the morning. thank you. things are worsening, i'm wondering what the reaction is about? how do you analyze the he reaction? >> i think more to do with the economy than the fed because the bond market is not moving at all. what people are doing, saying, this global turmoil is reflected in the u.s. economy and that's why you're seeing the stocks and keep going down.
8:39 am
221. charles: we started the conversation about the fed credibility and the bank credibility and off-springs or proxy or take things where they normally wouldn't go. if they allow the free market to be free, there's pain from time to time. and we should go through life and never have hiccups and bumps and bruises, maybe the fed is inconsequential nonators what they do. dagen: if the market is trading down. what is the most important? the unemployment rate is significant improvement, but the job creation is-- >> well, 200,000 in the labor force is a nice start. i mean, we have millions left. i don't know that one number, positive number is enough to erase the fact you have more people have more or less given up on the american dream and sit on the sofa and play video games because they have they don't have confidence.
8:40 am
hitting the bricks over 300 million jobs created. 1.6 million, over half of them is because people ran out of unemployment benefits and this to look for jobs. maria: peter barnes, we've got more. >> i want to talk about janet yellen's labor market dashboard. maria: and you were at jackson hole last week. >> i was. maria: yes. >> she wasn't. [laughter] and peter-- >> one of the things she was looking at is people working part-time for economic reasons and we actually saw a reversal in that last month. 6 1/2 million people working part-time for economic reasons, an increase of 150,000 people over the month of july, and we've been seeing that number trending down and it took a big reversal last month. she watches that and also, this 2.2% increase in average hourly earnings year over year. remember, a lot of that might be driven by this-- the increases in the minimum wage that have been kicking in
8:41 am
at companies and in states across the country. and not necessarily by market forces, by necessarily more demand for workers. dagen: peter, i just wanted to back up. so that working part-time for economic reasons was up over july by how much? >> 150,000 more people. dagen: that's a big number. >> that's a big number, yeah, that will give the fed pause. maria: i guess there were reports yesterday in terms of strategists out there in wall street, basically speculating that the selling is not over. even though we have been seeing stability in the last couple of days or so that we're still in this corrective mode. it certainly feels like that this morning. charles: charles you've got to retest the bottom and the dow back to 15,666, an ominous number to be sure, that would be what, what, another 500 points, almost 600 points where the futures are pointing right now. and also, remember, guys, they say on wall street, the market
8:42 am
doesn't begin until everybody comes back after labor day. the month of august has extraordinary moves in part because the big boys are out, chilling out at the hamptons or wherever they chill out and we'll know a lot more and get a lot more clarity on the markets when they come back. over the last few days we've and getting reports on the big guys, i call them the pharaohs of wall street. >> they took a trip to-- >> david einhorn terrible month. maria: look at government jobs 33,000 up and you've got manufacturing and mile per houring in the dump, no surprise there with what commodities have done. joey, comments on some of these numbers? >> yeah, i think that we are all going to be hoping for some upward revisions to these numbers because they do seem very low. i mean, health care, obviously, has been one of the strongest sectors, we've seen that across
8:43 am
the board. nurses are in demand. maria: we're going to need more in health care profession. >> that's a strong number. for the past few months we've seep it at 30,000. and we've seen a strong need for health care workers. construction, manufacturing, to have a loss of 17,000 jobs when we start today see some expansion. even though it was slow, we were seeing expansion in manufacturing. so, that is a real disappointment. what is interesting is, i always look at the temporary numb number. part-time workers and then temporary workers. temporary workers grew by 10,000, showing employers are adding temporary workers. they're using labor differently. they want more flexibility in their work force. last month, it was a negative 9,000, so, that's about 20,000 jobs from month over month. >> and that is how recoveries go. they start with the part-timers
8:44 am
and once they get enough confidence, wish that would happen, bring them on full-time. one thing we should think about, the markets, japan and australia got hammered last night, thursday, and look at mining, australia, it fits together. and that's why-- >> and it's the first time in 24 years-- ments canada in is in recession, and japan is in recession. let's not forget about japan in recession. and the global is slowing. steve cortez you've been talking about this and why you're bearish on the market. are you a seller down 200 on the dow? >> i don't know if you sell here, i believe that the fed is on hold. in general, do i think that lower prices back in? yes, i do, sadly, because of global growth. i think that the united states is doing relatively well. but you mentioned the trouble spots on the globe. australia dollar six-year long and hong kong closed at i believe, a three-year low. the risk is still to deflation,
8:45 am
not inflation. if the fed-- look emerging market stocks have been down now seven weeks in a row something they've not done in four years. if the fed raises rate into that kind of a global slowdown, i think it truly risks an emerging market collapse on the fed knows that and won't do it. maria: emerging markets. you talk about the last several weeks, how about the last several years, there's been no let up. does anybody on the panel see a catalyst for the emerging markets to start moving off again? >> i was talking to a guy who looks at long-term investing. ten years going forward in the u.s. based on current valuation, sees 2%. and emerging markets 7% over the next ten years. the price to earnings ratio, it's going to be a rollercoaster, and you're going to get hurt if you buy today. ten years out he sees great opportunity there and domestic investors should think about this. we all tend to be overweighted domestically.
8:46 am
you look at long-term. dagen: no we don't, not anymore. the money has been going out of u.s. stock funds since the downturn. >> the average person is very overweight u.s. equities. dagen: you're saying what financial advisors say they should have been putting their money in the emerging markets since '08 and that's where they've fallen on their face. maria: and now in europe. we'll talk about that when we come back. peter barnes and steve cortez, thank you for joining the conversation. creating 173,000 job in august, below expectations called for a growth of 220,000. futures have been bouncing around for weak today. take a look, we're expecting a decline at the open about 178 points. more from our panel after the short break. hi my name is tom. i'm raph. my name is anne. i'm one of the real live attorneys you can talk to through legalzoom. don't let unanswered legal questions hold you up, because we're here, we're here,
8:47 am
and we've got your back. legalzoom. legal help is here.
8:48 am
8:49 am
8:50 am
>> a big morning ahead on "varney & company." two presidential candidates, carly fiorina and mike huckabee, we'll be talking with them after the show on fox business. stay with us at 9 a.m. for stuart's show. the economy created 173,000 jobs in the month of august, missing the expectations, calling for 220,000. the unemployment rate in august fell to 5.1%. our panel is still here looking at the repercussions here and the impact of the dow jones industrials futures right now. down 200 points. it's going to be another tough day at the office. what do you to in this environment, charles payne? >> i would think that most people have taken action the last three weeks, some people took losses, some people raised cash, some bought some things. and consider this, we're into a three-day weekend, how scary is that? and then we've got to deal with china on monday and haven't had
8:51 am
to deal with them for a couple of days. we've got a lot of dark clouds on our horizon. >> do you have a portfolio with a level of risk that you can live with? and i think that people ask that question and made those decisions and made those moves. >> unfortunately-- >> a week ago. >> with individual investors and i deal with them. a lot of them come to me and they say i want to be an investor and own stocks. maria: that's not a trader. >> when they go down, you know, in these kind of environments, they don't have the nerve or-- to hold on. we're talking dow up 190% and gives back 12% ap people are taking losses on things more than likely they'll regret six months from now, a year from now, certainly as an investor a year from now. if you open a pizzeria in new york city, if you sold it on day one, you'd only get half the amount you poured into it. you approach that as a business owner. if i buy nike, i'm not taking a loss on it.
8:52 am
i don't care. maria: you've got to be long-term thinking and your cover story is long-term thinking over the weekend. >> and it's semi long-term and the end of the year, see 10%, now 11. >> that's the short-term. maria: that is short-term, but i'm saying-- look who you're talking to. long-term thinkers. i agree. a target for year end is not long-term. >> this has got to be a gut check now. how painful is this for you? we're only back to what, probably the beginning of the year, middle of last year right now. so if you can't take this, it's time to get out of the kitchen because it could get a heck of a lot worse. >> in this issue, strong market crazy world. it will hit stands tomorrow morning. you also have an article about dividend payers and about income. so, looking for ideas, safety ideas in a market that's down 257 points, by the way.
8:53 am
we're down 260 on the dow. >> a couple of our writers come from different angles and we excluded telecom and they're yield, 3, 4%. maria: give me one or two. >> i can't because we're not recommending, but-- >> what good are you? why did we book you? [laughter] >> and as of yesterday, 5 1/2% and today probably yielding more than that, garmin, they're not the sexy one in thiswarable technology, but they have an interesting balance sheet. charles: that's the point, these attractive yields, can they maintain them? >> garmin, and the energy companies don't have the cash flow to support the juicy dividends. >> and keeping those dividends or the stock-- >> chevron in part because of the dividend, they'll fire people about of they cut the
8:54 am
dividend. maria: and in the sector, don't worry, we're keeping the dividends where it is, we're going to cut 1500 jobs, but the dividend is safe. dagen: and the stock and a potential dividend cut, too. >>. maria: they're not going to cut dividends in the energy sector. >> it feels like they never got enough. when they cut the dividend, oh, man. maria: we've got a serious situation, the futures at the low decline in the trading at the opening 300 points. dow futures down 284, talking a decline of 1 3/4%, know the a lot of places to hide in the market. dagen: this is a sell first, ask questions later market. that jobs report was not enough to warrant that down turn. charles: people should not change the channel. we were up a hundred points yesterday and gave it back. these guys starting up or down 200 points is par for the course.
8:55 am
maria: you're right. joey, is there anything from the report that you can glean where the growth is it? >> everybody is looking for growth at 2% and in a world where interest rates are at zero. >> where is the growth coming from? you know the hottest sector still remain to be technology, health care, pharmaceuticals, you know, those companies are still hiring. they have many openings out there. they're having a difficult time actually finding talent and we talked about that before, but that is a very, very big challenge. what concerns me on the other side, is retail. retail, we only saw 11,000 jobs created when in previous months we've been creating over 30,000 jobs. so, we've heard about a lot of layoffs coming in, you know, certainly the retailers, energy sector, of course, has been one of the hardest hit in this area, but this is the time right now that retailers really start to ramp up they focus on--
8:56 am
>> ramp up-- >> we've heard year over year that normally retailers are ramping up for a good holiday season. we're not showing that as much, so we need to see what's going to happen now. maria: this has been an amazing conversation, everybody. want to thank dagen mcdowell, charles payne, joey, don't forget you can catch charles payne with i can making money on charles payne. he will have the closing numbe numbers. charles: and a box of kleenex. maria: and a box of kleenex. appreciate it very much. the market is down 270 now. 30 minutes away from the opening bell. we'll be right back.
8:57 am
here is a simple math problem. two trains leave st. louis for albuquerque at the same time. same cargo, same size, same power. which one arrives first? hint: it's not the one on the left. the speedy guy on the right is part of an intelligent system that creates the optimal trip profile for all trains on the line. and the one on the left? uh, looks like it'll be counting cows for awhile. so maybe the same things aren't quite the same. ge software. get connected. get insights. get optimized.
8:58 am
8:59 am
>> i want to show you the futures right now where indications are that we'll see a decline in the dow jones average, back and forth from the lows this morning. we're looking at a tough opening although we are
9:00 am
fractionally off of the lowest levels of the morning. of course, this is after the unemployment report. the unemployment rate fell to 5.1%. 173,000 jobs created and that will do it for us. i'll see you next week. happy labor day everybody. stuart varney, have a great show. you have a big one. stuart: we do, indeed. isn't this a smart move to buy stocks before a three-day weekend when the market has been all over the map? we're going to find out today. good friday morning, everyone. first up, that weak jobs report, that's the way i characterize it, 173,000 new jobs and the participation rate stayed at a generational low. investors not happy and the dow will drop, 260, 280 at the opening bell. donald trump confused by questions on foreign policy? is this a repeat of the sarah palin, i can see russia from my house gotcha question? he doesn't care. he is at a 30% support level way out front. will joe biden
