Here’s a hint — have you seen the Stock Market numbers lately?
For context: The market expectations for Trump’s first month were that we would have maybe 190,000 new jobs.
Sounds pretty good, right? Especially if you’re one of the ones going back to work!
Hold that thought. The numbers are in.
Companies added jobs at a blistering pace in February, with a notable shift away from the service-sector positions that have dominated hiring for years, according to a report Wednesday.
Employment in the private sector surged by 298,000 for the month, with goods producers adding 106,000, ADP and Moody’s Analytics said. Construction jobs swelled by 66,000 and manufacturing added 32,000.
Guess what, Pelosi?
It WAS ‘the economy, stupid’.
“February proved to be an incredibly strong month for employment with increases we have not seen in years,” Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute, said in a statement.
In addition to the construction and manufacturing positions, mining and natural resources also contributed 8,000 to the total. Trump has promised to restore mining jobs as well.
The year is off to a sizzling start for job creation, according to the ADP counts. January added 261,000 positions, a number that was revised upward from the originally reported 246,000.
“Confidence is playing a large role,” Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics, told CNBC. “Businesses are anticipating a lot of good stuff — tax cuts, less regulation. They are hiring more aggressively.” —CNBC
How about that?
Looks like most of the ‘news agencies’ in their endless NeverTrump hysteria, completely missed this good news story.
Wonder why THAT might be?
