Analysts were calling for 180,000 new jobs for January 2018 and we were all pleasantly surprised on Friday when the BLS reported that the U.S. has added 200,000 jobs, which on its own is great news.
While the economy continues to improve and create more jobs, the larger question looming has been “where is the wage growth”?
We are happy to report that average hourly earnings improved by 2.9% in January from a year earlier; a sign that the long, slow economic recovery is at last reaching Americans’ pocketbooks. This is forcing companies to compete harder for workers, a recipe for continued demand, and escalation in compensation levels.
Taken together, the data paints a picture of an economy that is not just creating jobs but that is increasingly creating good ones.
