The United States economy continued to roar to life under President Trump in November, with the private sector adding more than 266,000 new jobs in just one month; smashing industry expectations.
“The jobs market turned in a stellar performance in November, with nonfarm payrolls surging by 266,000 and the unemployment rate falling to 3.5%, according to Labor Department numbers released Friday,” reports CNBC.
“Those totals easily beat the Wall Street consensus. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been looking for solid job growth of 187,000 and saw the unemployment rate holding steady from October’s 3.6%. The decline in November’s jobless rate came amid a corresponding 0.1 percentage point drop in the labor force participation rate, to 63.2%,” adds the website.
GREAT JOBS REPORT!
