My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Jobs, Jobs, Everywhere Jobs

Hiring gained ground in February with employers adding 243,000 jobs, the most in three months. Brighter job prospects sent people streaming into the labor market

I wonder why this news wasn't on the front page of the Comcast News, or in the Headlines of the MSNBC web page.

No I don't.

Other details:

The unemployment rate inched up to 4.8 percent from a 4 1/2 year low of 4.7 percent in January. The bump-up in the jobless rate came as people — feeling better about job prospects — applied for work in droves.

The report also showed that employees’ average hourly earnings rose to $16.47 in February, a 0.3 percent increase from January. That was in line with economists’ expectations.

However, compared with February of last year, average hourly earnings increased by 3.5 percent — the most since September 2001.

That sounds all good for America.

Again, wonder why this isn't font page stuff.
