Thread: nice employment report this morning

    nice employment report this morning

    Some good news:

    Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 211,000 in April, and the unemployment rate was little changed at 4.4 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Job gains occurred in leisure and hospitality, health care and social assistance, financial activities, and mining.
    The average workweek for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls increased by 0.1 hour to 34.4 hours in April. In manufacturing, the workweek edged up by 0.1 hour to 40.7 hours, and overtime edged down by 0.1 hour to 3.2 hours. The average workweek for production and nonsupervisory employees on private nonfarm payrolls edged up by 0.1 hour to 33.7 hours.
    In April, average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls rose by 7 cents to $26.19. Over the year, average hourly earnings have risen by 65 cents, or 2.5 percent.
    Employment up, hours worked up, wages up...all good news. Please don't attribute this to Trump...he has done nothing...this started building last fall...don't attribute it to Obama either...he didn't do anything in his last years to help workers either.

    The bad news:

    the change for March was revised down from +98,000 to +79,000 With these revisions, employment gains in February and March combined were 6,000 lower than
    previously reported.
    March was really bad...not Trump or Obama's fault/responsibility either...despite those like Gilligan who try to make it out as such.

    You forgot to link to anything supporting your asinine assertion.

    So weak first quarter growth was Trumps fault, but a good jobs report from the first quarter is not?

    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    She can't even remember to take her meds on time. How you expect her to post with any consistency?

    Ah, yes. A world with no potus. A place, deep in space, whereby nothing a president does, or does not do, says, or does not say, can penetrate. A void. A vacuum? A reasoning, an argument that says presidents don't really matter and may simply not even exist. A land that time has forgotten, does not affect, has no effect; the land of the bureau of labor statistics.

    I'd often suspected as much...

    That is an interesting thought. Then, America could get back to Her roots.

    I wonder how many people know that George was not the first to be considered president?

    But, we know that presidents don't decide it all, or do they?
