Economy Gains 228K Jobs in November, Beating Expectations

In November, the economy added 228,000 new payroll jobs, and unemployment held at 4.1 percent, which is better than expectations, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

While both Florida's and Texas's economies continue to recover from hurricanes, forecasters had expected 190,000 new jobs to be created in November.

But employers added 228,000 jobs in November, a lower drop-off from the 244,000 new jobs in October after Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

 

November’s job numbers bring the 11-month total to more 1.9 million jobs this year. Under former President Barack Obama, the U.S. added2.2 million jobs in 2016, on top of 2.7 million jobs gained in 2015.

"The job market and the economy are strong,” Mark Zandi, the chief economist for Moody’s Analytics, told Politico following the new report. “It would be pretty hard to derail.”

The jobs numbers come as Congress continues to work on tax reform following the Senate passing an early Saturday morning bill that Republicans are now working to add the final touches to, which is set to slash the corporate tax rate.

 

So much winning!

What are the odds of Trump taking credit for the dismal job gains in December? Which, by the way, marks the first month of Trump's first fiscal year.  He's been taking credit for Obama's last fiscal year since he was elected.
