Payroll processing company ADP reports 135,000 private sector jobs were added last month, falling below analyst expectations. Will the weak numbers cause the Fed to stick to stimulus?

Payroll processing company ADP reported this morning that 135,000 private sector jobs were added last month. The latest figures, which come just two days before the official monthly jobs report from the Labor Department, fall below analyst expectations.
