Private sector employment in the U.S. increased by 271,000 jobs from November 2018 to December 2018 exceeding Reuters estimates of 178,000 jobs according to the December ADP National Employment Report. While Democrats act like the sky is falling the December job gain was the highest since February 2017. This brought the monthly average job gain for 2018 to 203,000.
Ahu Yildirmaz, Vice President of ADP Research Institute said “We wrapped up 2018 with another month of significant growth in the labor market. Although there were increases in most sectors, the busy holiday season greatly impacted both trade and leisure and hospitality. Small businesses also experienced their strongest month of job growth all year”.
The U.S. labor market is considered at or beyond full employment. The unemployment rate in November was 3.7% – the lowest since 1969. Economists expect the December unemployment rate to remain steady at 3.7%.
In addition to the employment numbers overall the American economy grew by 3.4% in the 3rd quarter. The American GDP is almost $1.7 trillion larger than in January 2017. Since January 2017 more than 3 million Americans are no longer on welfare programs and there are 8 million fewer Americans living below the poverty line than 8 years ago. In December 2018 America became the worlds largest oil producer for the first time since 1973.
The next time a Liberal tells you that President Trump is not making America great again remind them that the President is making America employed again. And self sustaining again. And our nation strong again.
