In March of 2017, the second full month of Donald Trump’s presidency, there were 98,000 jobs created! The unemployment rate has plummeted to 4.5 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The retail sector shed 30,000 jobs in March.
Job creation fell short of the 180,000 jobs forecast by economists surveyed by Reuters. Economists had expected job creation to fall in March, as unseasonably stormy weather lashed the Northeast during that month. February’s weather was unusually mild, which has led economists to think some jobs in weather-sensitive sectors like construction may have increased from previous months.
Fox reported that workers are beginning to receive raises because businesses are striving to keep their workers more happy. When compared to last March, wages are now 2.7 percent higher.
