August Employment Numbers

YoY and MoM Job growth occurred in many categories in August. The trend is encouraging – and last month’s 8.1% unemployment was revised down to 7.9%. Six years ago we thought we would have 225,000 to 235,000 non-farm jobs by now, adding some context to the year over year increase to 212,000. Good news, and let us hope it continues longer term.
