MARTIN: So does that mean the job market, basically, escaped largely unscathed because of the shutdownlast month? Now that the shutdown has ended, these people will go back to being counted as having just one job beginning in February.And for most of January, the weather was relatively warm in much of the United States, which likely boosted construction employment, which rose 52,000, the most in almost a year.The strong job market, though, is encouraging more people who weren't working to begin looking.

January marks the 100th straight month of job growth in the US, a record more than twice as long as the previous one of 48 months set in June 1990.
MARTIN: So January - clearly, a big month for hiring. Many economists and investors took that as a sign that a rate increase is unlikely any time in the coming months.
