The first Friday of every month is when the monthly jobs report gets released — but not this Friday. That’s because among those told to stay home with this partial government shutdown are the labor statisticians who normally would have crunched the numbers. 

Chris Low, chief economist at FTN Financial, joins Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccio to discuss what economists are predicting in lieu of the formal report.
