Losing Momentum

Friday’s BLS economic report clearly shows that momentum in the labor market has stalled: nonfarm private payrolls increased by a meager 17,000, but as government payrolls declined by 17,000 the net job creation for August was nil.

In the last consecutive 18 months, the economy did add 2.4 million private sector jobs.
