195,000 Jobs Added In August, Surging Past Expectations

Liberals in media spent much of the summer trying to talk a recession into happening, for purely political reasons.

It didn’t work out as they had hoped, though.

The new numbers for August are in, and they’re great.

FOX Business reports:

Most hiring took place in the service-providing sector, with 184,000 new jobs created. Manufacturing hiring remained fairly steady, with 8,000 jobs added.

It was the best month for private-sector hiring since April, which saw 255,000 new jobs added.

The better-than-expected number could help to temper fears that the record-long economic expansion is coming to an end.

“Businesses are holding firm on their payrolls despite the slowing economy,” Moody’s Analytics chief economist Mark Zandi said in a statement. “Hiring has moderated, but layoffs remain low. As long as this continues recession will remain at bay.”

During a conference call with reporters, Zandi said he estimated the economy created 100,000 jobs per month on average. If the trade war does not continue to weigh on the health of certain sectors, like agriculture and transportation, the economy could avoid a recession.

This is fantastic news.

Sorry Democrats and media.

This is great news for the American people.
