You can actually FEEL America getting GREAT again!
ADP payroll report shows President Trump made a big down payment on his promise to be the greatest jobs president ever.
The economy added nearly 300,000 new jobs last month. Economists expected a rise of 190,000. It was the biggest jump in jobs in 6 years.
The jobs were the good kind of jobs Trump talks about: manufacturing, mining. Jobs with grit. Not a lot of waitresses and bartenders.
According to CNBC:
Companies added jobs at a blistering pace in February, with** a notable shift away from the service-sector positions that have dominated hiring for years, according to a report Wednesday.**
In addition to the construction and manufacturing positions, mining and natural resources also contributed 8,000 to the total. Trump has promised to restore mining jobs as well.
The year is off to a sizzling start for job creation, according to the ADP counts. January added 261,000 positions, a number that was revised upward from the originally reported 246,000.
“Confidence is playing a large role,” Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics, told CNBC. “Businesses are anticipating a lot of good stuff — tax cuts, less regulation. They are hiring more aggressively.”
When people have to choose between one of many great jobs or many great, fulfilling careers, a lot of the trivial issues will disappear. But for today, let’s just say “Thank you, President Trump.”
