Payroll Gain of 209,000, Wage Pickup Show U.S. Labor Strength
Friday, 4 August 2017 19:59 WIB | ECONOMY |Ekonomi ASNon-Farm EmploymentPayroll AS

The U.S. labor market hit its stride in July, as employers added workers at a solid clip, the jobless rate matched a 16-year low and monthly wage growth picked up.

Payrolls rose 209k (est. 180k); May-June revisions added 2k jobs.

Unemployment rate, derived from separate survey of households, fell to 4.3% (matching est.).

Average hourly earnings rose 0.3% m/m (matching est.) after 0.2% gain; up 2.5% y/y (est. 2.4%).

Job gains were broad-based during July, led by a large jump in leisure and hospitality employment, a move driven by restaurants. Hiring also hit five-month highs in manufacturing and education and health services.

Stronger household incomes and buoyant consumer confidence are helping to propel demand, while a rebound in global growth has provided more opportunities for American exporters. With job vacancies close to record highs, employers are reluctant to fire workers, keeping jobless-benefit claims near the lowest in four decades.

The acceleration in wages on a monthly basis may show that managers are finally starting to boost pay some more in a bid to keep or attract workers. Even so, the 2.5 percent pace of annual pay growth is little changed over the past two years, owing to factors including weak productivity, as well as people returning to the labor force and accepting lower-skilled work.

The solid job-market gains should at least keep household spending humming in the third quarter as the economy struggles to break out of a 2-percent growth pattern of the last several years. The July figures may also give a cleaner read on labor-market health after unseasonal weather and fluctuations in end-of-school year hiring muddied the picture over the past few months.

And while tepid broader inflation has been a challenge for Federal Reserve policy makers, the broader thrust of the employment report is likely to keep the central bank on course. Officials have signaled they™re ready to move forward with reducing the Fed™s $4.5 trillion balance sheet and potentially increasing interest rates once more this year.

While President Donald Trump has been praising the pace of job gains since he took office in January, the average figure of 179,000 over the past six months remains below the typical 187,000 per month in 2016. His goal of adding 25 million jobs over 10 years would require additions of 208,000 a month.
