While the arrival of August may herald the dog days of summer, this morning’s Jobs Report was no dog. No offense to our canine friends, but without the viewing lens of the “new normal”, a report like this ten years ago would have had four legs and a tail. But that was then. Now, the 209k addition to Non- Farm Payrolls looks like a barn burner, especially in light of the 180k expectation. And, our already fully-employed economy became even more fully-employed as the Unemployment Rate fell by a tenth to 4.3%. Yet, Average Hourly Earnings growth remains unchanged at 2.5% year-over-year. The biggest job gainers (+53k) were food services and drinking places as the nation readies itself for football season.Go team!
