Jobs Report Breakdown

  1. Anyone see a breakdown of this? Was it another slight of hand in birth/death adjustments and new government jobs?
  2. Sobieski


    Just heard on Bloomberg that there were gains in government, restaurant and hotel sectors, and losses in the manufacturing, retail and stripper/pornstar sectors.

    Or something like that.
  3. Yes, 2/3 fabrication, IMO.

    they say construction added 14,000

    finance added 25,000

    prof and bus serve added 36,000

    all total BS, IMO
    all in all they added 103,000 to the reported numbers via birth/death adj

    by contrast, the household survey they do said 200,000 jobs were lost
