If you’ve been watching the business news media this morning, you might have noticed just how excited all of the pundits seemed to be. That has everything to do with the number of new jobs that our economy seems to have gained in February.
At CNBC the cast of their morning show was breathlessly reporting on the amazing numbers that our economy posted this past month.
In February our economy add 298K new, private sector jobs. This number BLEW AWAY the projected number of 190K, but more importantly the job gains were evenly distributed across the jobs spectrum.
Construction was up 66K.
Hospitality was up 40K.
Health Care 38K.
The numbers were also up across the business spectrum – small companies hired 104K new employees, medium companies hired 122K, and large companies hired 72K.
“February proved to be an incredibly strong month for employment with increases we have not seen in years,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute said in a statement. “Gains were driven by a surge in the goods sector, while we also saw the information industry experience a notable increase.”
Liberal economist Mark Zandi was forced to admit that the President had much to do with the impressive recovery, “Confidence is playing a large role. Businesses are anticipating a lot of good stuff — tax cuts, less regulation. They are hiring more aggressively.”
While the left and their friends in the media rage against President Trump, the rest of us here in flyover country are watching news reports like this and smiling. It’s only been a few weeks of a new administration and life for the average American is already getting better. This is why voters in most states are still happy with the way the election turned out.
