The economy is continuing to experience employment growth with the addition of 156,000 new jobs in the month of August, detailed a federal report Friday.
President Donald Trump has overseen steady employment growth since entering office earlier this year. The positive trend started in the final years of the last administration. The Bureau of Labor Statistics found in its latest jobs report that the trend continued with 156,000 new jobs.
“Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 156,000 in August, and the unemployment rate was little changed at 4.4 percent,” the report states. “Job gains occurred in manufacturing, construction, professional and technical services, health care, and mining.”
