Consistent gains, economic security, jobs, jobs, jobs! The US has shaken the last remains of the recession and is poised for a great second half of the decade.
Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 215,000 in March, and the unemployment
rate was little changed at 5.0 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
reported today. Employment increased in retail trade, construction, and health
care. Job losses occurred in manufacturing and mining.
The good news (for employees) continued: NYS will be raising the minimum wage in upstate New York to $12.50/hour and mandating paid leave.
Great reports seem to be the norm, hopefully they continue!
