And the positive job growth record continues 89 months of positive job growth.

February 2018 was almost as good as the last two Februarys (2017 and 2016 numbers were slightly better but not by much)-- nice to see the trend continue.

Seems tax cuts haven't slowed down the job market - -hasn't boosted it yet either -- but that's okay.

There's time right kids......

Maintaining equilibrium is a big challenge.

More importantly understand that maintaining those job numbers is harder and harder as we approach full employment. So being slightly lower is actually pretty impressive.

The number of working Americans has decreased from a high of 154,494,000 in September 2017 to 152,848,000 in January 2018.

That's a loss of 1,646,000 jobs.

See LNU02000000 Employment Level.

Friday's real job report from BLS will show if the trend continues.

I continue to be astounded by the fact that you do not seem to understand why seasonally adjusted numbers are used by everyone to show job growth changes.

To understand it, anyone looking at your number should click on the 5 year display option and they will see the same pattern emerge where job losses occur every year as the holidays end. But if you want to understand how things are going in a more apples to apples comparison you use seasonally adjusted so you remove the "noise" that the raw numbers give. IE your argument is giving people the "Oh noes! less people are employed then in the christmas seasons!" as a "Oh noes things are worse!" Which is just not the case.

Or compare the numbers to a year earlier, rather then a 3 month gap.

Quit misleading people with this bit of nonsense.

This is not seasonally adjusted.

Here is the seasonally adjusted graph.

Looks like steady upward trend since 2010.
