Number of Employed Americans Reaches Record High Under Trump

Number of Employed Americans Reaches Record High Under Trump

In addition, prior months estimates were revised up.

"It's hard to fathom how the robust manufacturing conditions will be sustained", said Joe Brusuelas, chief economist at RSM in NY.

Average hourly earnings of private-sector workers rose 2.7 percent in June from a year ago, in line with recent monthly readings, suggesting that wage growth remains modest.

An acceleration in pay increases could prompt the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates more sharply to head off a spike in inflation.

For employers, however, a hot job market is costly. There were increases in professional and business services employment as well as leisure and hospitality.

Yet another month of robust job creation showed that, despite complaints from companies nationwide about the worsening labour shortage, there remained untapped pockets of idled workers at last able to reenter the jobs market after almost a decade of economic recovery.

Services sectors, meanwhile, lost 14,700 jobs mostly because of big decreases in accommodation and food services positions as well as wholesale and trade.

Russian Federation vs Croatia Prediction
Domagoj Vida had scored earlier for Croatia in extra to take the lead after the two played to a 1-1 draw through 90 minutes. Croatia hadn't advanced this far at the World Cup since the 1998 World Cup, which was its first appearance.

The personal finance site analyzed three key employment components in all 50 states, including the employment growth rate and the unemployment rate (pulled from the Bureau of Labor Statistics), as well as the number of weeks that residents can collect unemployment insurance to make ends meet while looking for work. That's what caused the unemployment rate to rise to 4%, the highest level since March.

We have long contended the unemployment rate is essentially meaningless as it tracks just one small segment of the labor force - but it is viewed as gospel by mainstream media outlets. But even that reflected a healthy economy: It rose because more than 600,000 Americans joined the work force. That was the first increase in the jobless rate in 10 months. The factory jobs were concentrated in the automobile industry, which had seen a decline in employment in May after a fire at a major parts supplier disrupted production.

The report provided positives all around.

Economists have estimated that 195,000 jobs were added last month and that the unemployment rate remained at an 18-year low of 3.8 per cent, according to data provider FactSet.

For the Fed, the report presents a bit of a dilemma. That kept the annual increase in average hourly earnings at 2.7 percent. Staten Island is being infused with an estimated 8,000 jobs as many new businesses, like Amazon, plan to open here.

This may seem freakish on a number of levels - the person might have stopped looking because she feels her search is hopeless, or because he no longer wants a job.
