NEW YORK: The dollar turned slightly lower against a basket of currencies on Friday as the government said US employers added fewer workers than expected in August while average hourly wages grew a bit more strongly than forecast.

At 8:55 a.m. (1255 GMT), an index that tracks the greenback against six major currencies was 0.12% lower at 98.298, holding above a one-week low of 98.085 reached on Thursday.
