Maybe I missed it, but I haven't seen any discussion of the January jobs report here.

It was widely predicted that the government shutdown and other factors (such as that trump is still president) would mean a lower jobs number for January. Some MSM outlets were predicting less than 100,000 jobs in January and all were predicting less than 150,000.

The number came in at 304,000. Now the predictions are that it can't be sustained - even though this is two months in a row of very good numbers and continues a long string of good reports.

"In the past twelve months, the labor force has risen by more than 2.1 million. But, even with more people looking for work, job growth has been strong enough to keep the unemployment rate at or below four per cent, and employers have been forced to raise wages in order to retain their own employees and find new ones."
