The government's jobs report for December showed job creation at a much lower rate than expected.

But Jill Schlesinger, a CBS business news analyst and host of "Jill on Money,” explains why, during a pandemic, it can be especially challenging to grapple with monthly jobs reports in real-time.

This segment aired on January 10, 2022.
