Nonfarm payroll employment rose by 132,000 in November; Unemployment Rate was essentially unchanged at 4.5 percent. Gains came primarily in services, health care and retail. Employment declined in construction and manufacturing.As usual, new jobs barely, if at all, kept up with population growth. You'll being hearing reports, and huzzah's, of wage growth but when you break it down, hourly wage growth dropped. As has been the case for years, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
I'm a very lucky person with every allergy known to man but still happy to be enjoying a wonderful life living in the best place in the world!
