Jobs Friday: Chillaxing Edition

Apr 5, 2019

Happy Jobs Friday! Employers added 196,000 jobs to the economy in March, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. The unemployment rate is 3.8%, and wages grew by 3.2% since last March.

Plus, middle and high-wage industries have faster jobs growth than low-wage ones, but low-wage industries are seeing faster wage growth.

All of this is a reminder that the economy is continuing to grow — even if the rate of that growth is slowing. That's good...right?
