Economy Produced 250,000 New Jobs in the USA During October 2018
Blowing past expectations in October 2018, job growth grew three percent for the first time since the Great Recession, according to the Labor Department. Refinitiv, a global provider of financial markets data and infrastructure, estimated jobs were increasing by 190,000 when in fact nonfarm positions grew by 250,000 for the month. The unemployment rate remained at 3.7 percent, which is the lowest amount since December 1969. Jim Baird, the chief investment officer, and partner for Plante&Moran Financial Advisors, said, “The job market is doing remarkably well, particularly this late in the expansion.” If you are looking for a job, now is a great time.

Baird commented that little is standing in the way of the economy being strong. Those employed in the United States rose to a new record of 156.6 million, and the employment-to-population ratio grew to 60.6 percent, which is the highest level since the end of 2008. The unemployed population fell to 95.9 million, dropping by 487,000. Jobs Across the World is ready to help match your skills with the perfect opportunity.
