An early peek at November job growth is looking good.

Payroll processor ADP says the private sector added 217,000 jobs last month. Analysts say that’s higher than expected and marks the second straight month of strong, steady growth.

It also makes it more likely the Fed will raise interest rates this month.

The Labor Department’s federal jobs report is due out Friday.
