MAGAnomics – November Report Adds 228,000 Jobs, Including 31,000 Manufacturing Gains…

Despite the negative banter from the gnats the U.S. economy is continuing to outpace economic expectations.  More importantly the gains are within targeted sectors long-ago written off.  Yes, Trump’s MAGAnomic policies are proving it was always possible.

Job gains exceeded 280,000 as the Main Street economy continues gaining momentum. The manufacturing sector added 31,000, a slight deviation from ADP payroll actuaries a week ago, which remains a complete reversal of prior historic job growth.   For the past three decades manufacturing jobs had been shrinking, now the sector is growing.  This is the important part of the overall picture.

The unemployment rate remains at 4.1%, because the underlying data has been strongly manipulated for the past several years.  If the data ran negative the statistical ruse would be evident; so the explanation remains that workers who left the economy have reentered, ie. “slack“.  :::eyeroll:::

Wage growth was estimated at 2.5%, which is in line with our previous analysis.  We do not anticipate massive wage rate gains until the full ‘slack‘ is taken up within the employment market.  Our prediction remains that Quarter #2 2018 (April, May, June) will be approximately the time-frame when wage rates increase at 5% and more.

(Reuters) […]  Nonfarm payrolls rose by 228,000 jobs last month amid broad gains in hiring as the distortions from the recent hurricanes faded, Labor Department data showed on Friday. The government revised data for October to show the economy adding 244,000 jobs instead of the previously reported 261,000 positions.

November’s report was the first clean reading since the storms, which also impacted September’s employment data.

The growth in employment was broad in November. Construction payrolls increased by 24,000 jobs, thanks in part to rebuilding efforts in the areas devastated by the hurricanes, after rising 10,000 in October.

Manufacturing scored another month of solid job gains, with payrolls increasing by 31,000 jobs after rising 23,000 in the prior month. Retail payrolls grew by 18,700 jobs last month, the largest gain since January. Employment at department stores increased by 3,100 jobs, likely boosted by hiring for the holiday season.  (read more)

      Pam they are truly petrified! Now they are saying there is no need for the Tax Reform Bill. They are predicting that it will drive down the economy. What scares the hell out of them is the exact opposite will occur. Manufacturing will boom 💥 like no one has seen in the past 30+ years. Our dependency on other countries producing products will diminish greatly causing other countries to suffer because the US is no longer dependent. That is their fear! The Global Economy will die a slow death 💀 without us. You can kiss Globalism goodbye. That is why they want to stop 🛑 the Tax Reform Bill!

      From the article linked above:

      The fairly upbeat report underscored the economy’s strength and could fuel criticism of efforts by Trump and his fellow Republicans in the U.S. Congress to slash the corporate income tax rate to 20 percent from 35 percent.

      “The labor market is in great shape. Tax cuts should be used when the economy needs tax cuts and it doesn’t need tax cuts right now,” said Joel Naroff, chief economist at Naroff Economic Advisors in Holland, Pennsylvania. “When politics and economics are mixed in the stew, the policies that are created often have a very awful smell.”

      • 60+ million unemployed i.e. “not in the labor force” because of sundry factors: a generational and “kulcheral” attitude against working in favor of living off “The Man,” (which used to be called “living off The Dole” (and we don’t mean pineapple), a large number who are products of leftist edutainment and edudoctrination in the schools and are therefore unqualified for many jobs, the previous two factors lead to using drugs to escape the boredom and spiritual emptiness of what they see in the mirrors, which makes them doubly or triply unqualified to work, etc. etc. etc.

        We read about a deficit of “2 million workers” who will be needed in he immediate future: they should be easily found among that 60+ million “not in the labor force,” but no.

        The Leftists are petrified of something else: that this fairly permanent Democratic block reforms their lives, gets off drugs, becomes working and contributing members of society, and abandons “victimhood.” Why else does the Left push “legal marijuana” except to keep people from working and being competent?

        The Wall Street Journal ran an article earlier this year about a job fair for railroad work in the Dakotas, where $50,000 a year (!!!) was the starting pay, rising to $100,000 after 3 years!!!

        When drug tests were announced, more than half of the crowd disappeared!

        Naroff is full of it. Some of this uptick is due to expectation that the corporate tax rate will fall to a competitive level (20% is more or less adequate; 15% would be much better; 0 is what it should be). It will be imposdible to sustain growth without the corporate tax reduction, and I suspect Naroff knows it–yes, mixing politics and economics does stink.

    I know everyone here knows this, but the fantastic thing about all this job growth, and particularly decent wage job growth, is that revenues to the treasury will go up exponentially while entitlement disbursement should go down. We could potentially see a dramatic narrowing of the annual budget deficit. I dare to hope but would love to see PDJT be able to preside over a budget surplus as well, but we’d have a long way to go for that.

        True. Entitlement reform needs to happen. But in the past, entitlement recipients have had to choose between staying on their program, or taking a job which pays maybe marginally more, but most likely less than what they get from Uncle Sam. Growth in manufacturing jobs, and their support industries are jobs which pay substantially more than one could get from unemployment, welfare, “disability”, or the like. There will always be those without the ambition to earn more, but a great many will take the opportunity to make more with a good wage earning job.

    Employment in manufacturing in the United States has increased by 189,000 in the year since Donald Trump was elected president, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    At the same time, employment in the federal government has declined by 3,000 since Trump was elected.

    In November 2016, there were 12,325,000 people employed in manufacturing in the United States. By this November, that had climbed to 12,514,000.

    “Since a recent low in November 2016, manufacturing employment has increased by 189,000,” the BLS said in the press release it put out this morning with the November employment numbers.

      Nah! That’s just reality speaking. The federal government needs to lose at least 189,000 jobs. Wouldn’t it be fun to calculate how many departments can lose how many jobs and have the U.S. government operating at its best, pruned for beautiful shape and top condition.

      I think of dear ol’ California with at least 100 “government” committees — almost all unnecessary — with all those chairs and top profligates making beaucoup salaries and planning to retire with almost 100% of their salaries.

      I camped at Folsom Lake; relative running the Half Iron Man in the Auburn Triathlon. Driving in the area outside of Sacramento was amazing. Lots and lots of wealth and very beautiful. I thought about all those government jobs for all those marxists who don’t really know how to do any thing productive. They just suck the life out of a society, a state, a government.

      Imagine how many times larger is the federal government overgrowth.

      Pruning. Yes, lots and lots and lots pruning needed. The root stock might be viable, but those suckers need to be taken out, every single one of them.

    Current U-6 Unemployment Rate is 7.7% (BLS)

    Current U-6 Unemployment Rate:

    For November 2017 the official Current U-6 unemployment rate was up slightly from 7.6% in October. But down drastically from 8.6% in August. It was 8.9% in July and June. Typically unemployment peaks in January and then again in July so we may be seeing some of the typical cyclical fluctuations but a drop of more than a full percentage point from July to November is still an exceptional move.

    And even more amazingly it was 10.1% in January (i.e. only 11 months ago!) and it was 9.0% a year ago (i.e. exactly at this same point in the yearly cycle).

    Effective July 2017, the independently produced Gallup equivalent called the “Underemployment Rate” is no longer being published. However, Gallup was typically 4% – 4.5% higher than the BLS numbers.

      It is about time someone looked into this corrupt paractice.
      This is why NY is always looking for new sources of revenue. Despite the astounding amount of largesse they grab from NYS taxpayers, so much of it goes to a bunch of connected non-producing leeches, by the time dollar one gets to the guy who plows the snow, there isn’t enough money to pay the number of people needed to perform the vital services NYers need.

    When job growth reaches a certain level…I suspect that’s when Pres Trump will start to really shrink the bloated Fed Payroll.

    Gotta have jobs for all those laid off Federal bureaucrats to go to.
    If they started slashing the payroll too soon…there would not be enough jobs for them.

    They haven’t said anything about it, this is just my own suspicion about how they will go about shrinking the Deficit.
    PTrump and his Wolverines know that we’ve got to get the size of the Govt down, to have any hope of starting to pay down the Debt.

    As jobs left our country…a lot of people went to the govt to get jobs.
    The Dems were more than willing to increase the size of the Govt Payroll.

    So it makes sense that we’ve got to do this in reverse.
    Get the jobs back.
    Then downsize the Govt.

        Even though welfare would be better than what government workers are costing us now, they need to be made to see what it takes to be successful in the world on one’s own merits. If we can be imaginative and provide amazing possibilities (and I do think we have to think about providing “something imaginative” for all those who should (will?) lose thousands of unnecessary government “jobs”), they might even learn to work, and maybe even enjoy working, and, further, maybe even pass on that pleasure and discipline to their kids.

        I think of all those parents growing up during the Great Depression, enduring and serving in World War II, and hoping to give their children a better life, while they slaved away (good slaving). They developed that prosperity and all those magnificent economic possibilities from the end of the 1940s up to the early 1970s.

        Those were amazing times, but those misguided parents who enabled/permitted their children to believe that peace and love were everything were the undoing of the next generation. Christopher Lasch called them narcissists in “Culture of Narcissism.” He wasn’t far wrong. Most of them went along with the insidious marxist program of redefining the meaning of American “liberalism,” essential to conserve, as “marxism,” one of our ongoing tragedies.

        Not all of them did anything wrong. I cannot blame someone for taking a job that was offered, when so few pay a living wage with things we used to take for granted, like weekends and holidays.
        If you work for one of the temp agencies today, as many overqualified Americans were forced to resort to, they don’t have Christmas as one of the paid holidays you can earn after six months. You get a day off, but you also end up short.

        But it would hurt our President if the Unemployment Rate shot up because of govt layoffs.

        In my opinion, that would be a good thing…but his enemies would use it against him.

        Govt bureaucrats have played a role in driving our jobs away, when they sit in their comfortable jobs, writing more rules & regulations that hurt businesses.
        So it would be righteous to see them get a taste of what the private sector has had to endure.

        But like I said, the Dems and the MSM would demagogue the resulting spike in Unemployment and use it to hurt Pres Trump.

        Personally, I would like to see govt layoffs happen each time the govt does something to create job losses in the private sector.
        This should apply to local and state govts as well.

        If govt employees didn’t feel so ‘safe’ in their own jobs, then they would be less inclined to do things that kill jobs for the rest of us.

        It is the private sector jobs that pay for those govt jobs.
        When the govt does things to kill off those private sector jobs…then the govt should lose govt jobs as a result.

      I would disparage the local garbage folk (momback). Until one dived into that and rescued neighbor childs ‘kiddy kat kitten. Now we would be much better off having that momback truly representing, both the wishes of child and all to perhaps replace this violently if need be this present hideous hideous thing called the US Congress!

      “… how many of you have dealt with low-level bureaucrats? “

      GACK — Don’t remind me!

      My WORST boss was a chemist retired from the government. He was a nasty rotten mean game player only interested in kissing rear and stabbing backs. Thanks to a buddy, I managed to dodge the knife he had aimed at my back and got him fired instead. He lasted 6 months and did major damage to the morale of the department.

        I’m on Medicaid (working part-time, don’t qualify for medical insurance and can’t afford private insurance, and being pregnant, need it!) and food stamps, currently (although that may be about to change, with my husband getting a job. I’m hoping to get off Medicaid, too.) Which means dealing with what is, in South Carolina, DSS – Department of Social Services. It takes a week to get through on the phone, only to be cut off five minutes into the utterly useless conversation. It is an exercise in either murderous frustration or saintly patience, depending on one’s personality and outlook.

    I’d believe that. Working a good 40-hours a week/$14 an hour job in a warehouse for the season on top of my retail job at the moment.

    Dammit! I still think HWSRN is too large in that image.
    For the sake of all things good and decent, won’t somebody please shrink the guy on the right down another eighty to ninety percent?

    Sundance, a humble suggestion. Could you please structure the above image accordingly to increase the size of the President and decrease the size of the person on the right? The existing image is not truly proportional and is in need of updating. Thank you in advance.

    Wouldn’t it be interesting if PDJT and his boys (cabinet) were quietly reducing the swamp / slough employees / guberment workers through attrition, big payroll reductions.. IE see State Dept..my money says nobody knows how to reduce cost like the retired CEO of a large oil company not to mention his boss a retired NY Realestate developer..Dog eat dog businesses both.
    My twenty + years in China and international trade tell me his boys definitely understand that arena. Protect = Protectionest Free Trade is a Street that runs both ways, not in Beijing.!

    The first thing I said the day after PDJT took down crooked HRC was show US (you & me) the Rule of Law. Down here in Mississippi when we needed to drain a slough/ swamp, we always made sure we had all the beaver (culprits) escape routes covered before setting off the dynamite…

    How about a law that says you can’t tax anything above 10%? That would be helpful.

    Sundance, correction please. This is the Christmas season, not the Holiday season. It’s not the same to me. Reminds me of lil’ barry from kenya. (I acknowledge that “Holiday” is a contraction of “Holy Day”. Still …)

      I’m sensitive to that as well. If there had not been a War On Christmas, which they pretended wasn’t real, I would be fine with “the holidays” being used for the whole season, but we just got Christmas back, we almost lost it.
      Merry Christmas, woodstuff.
      And Sundance.
      Merry Christmas to all.

    The only thing wrong is the picture of Trump and Pip Squeak Obama is that Obama is too large and doesn’t have the look of a desperate RAT!
