WASHINGTON -- A private survey shows that U.S. businesses added fewer workers in November, in part because Superstorm Sandy shut down factories, retail stores and other companies.

Payroll processor ADP says employers added 118,000 jobs last month. That's below October's total of 157,000, which was revised lower.
