Business News: Investors Anticipate Jobs Report

(CBS) - In Business News, investors are waiting for the release of the all important jobs report.

Analysts believe about 160,000 new jobs were added last month. They also predict the unemployment rate will stay unchanged at 7.5 percent.

There's been conflicting news about the job market this week. Numbers out Wednesday showed private employers hired fewer new workers than expected.

But yesterday the government said fewer people applied for first time unemployment benefits. 

(CBS) - A new report says Americans are recovering from the great recession but there's a long way to go.

The average family has regained about 45 percent of the wealth they lost during the financial collapse.

It's a much different story for wealthy Americans. The average affluent family has recovered everything and many have seen their net worth increase significantly because of higher stock prices. 

(CBS) - General Motors is throwing in some extras to drive up business.

The automaker says it will offer free oil changes, tire rotations and inspections on most of its 2014 models.

The freebies are good for two years or 24-thousand miles.
