Surprisingly Robust Job Growth Ahead of Sequester

Monday, March 11, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

The labor market continued to improve in February, generating 236,000 new jobs and probably providing a needed boost to consumer sentiment. The big question was whether this much job creation can be sustained. The answer is now complicated by the budget cuts under the sequester. What is clear however, is that the labor market was gaining traction before the sequester. Now the question becomes how much of a setback can be expected and for how long. But the job growth through February underlines the fact that the private economy was improving and likely will come back to this growth path after it absorbs this new shock.
