Labor Department Says 304,000 Jobs Created in Jan 2019 Despite Trump’s Shutdown2

According to a report published earlier this week by the United States Department of Labor, employers all over the U.S. were able to record an additional 304,000 in hiring in the month of January 2019, with the performance beating the 180,000 which was estimated by economists.

With this number, January 2019 marks the longest stretch of the monthly job as on record- reaching 100. Also, there were gains in the average hourly earnings, which increased by about 3.2% from January 2018. This is not particularly motivating, as it amounts to an increase of about 3 cents an hour.
