Industrial Watch: December 14, 2019

“November was the month for job creation. With 226,000 new positions in the month alone, the unemployment rate was lowered to 3.5 percent. The well-known trend is that there are more jobs available than workers to fill them, and companies are looking to new recruiting strategies and hiring in secondary markets to meet their needs. The resulting added housing demand and wages to meet it have affected nearly every sector including apartments, retail, etc. in those markets. Overall, approximately 180,000 jobs were added per month in 2019 at a 1.5 percent employment growth rate. It’s off to work we go!” -Adam Abushagur
