      US: 215k Jobs added in March; unemployment rate 5%

      Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 215,000 in March, and the unemployment rate was little changed at 5.0 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment increased in retail trade, construction, and health care. Job losses occurred in manufacturing and mining.

      In March, the unemployment rate (5.0 percent) and the number of unemployed persons (8.0 million) were little changed. Both measures have shown little movement since August.

      • Education and Health: 51K
      • Retail Trade: 48K
      • Leisure and Hospitality: 40K
      • 2/3 being minimum jobs.



      "In March, average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls increased by 7 cents to $25.43, following a 2-cent decline in February. Over the year, average hourly earnings have risen by 2.3 percent. In March, average hourly earnings of private-sector production and nonsupervisory employees increased by 4 cents to $21.37."

      More part timers and minimum wagers. Everything else still slowing down and declining. The US economy actually lost the biggest number of manufacturing workers since 2009.

      Manufacturing is a lost industry, if it doesn't get automated it just goes to the cheapest workers, the only definable edge America has in manufacturing is so that companies can say "made in America" on their products as an incentive for people to buy them for that sole reason. America is becoming a more knowledge based economy that relies heavily on intellectual property and innovative technology along with healthcare.

      Future of America: Dollar Crisis + Trade Deficit + Debt + No manufacturing recovery + China dumping Treasury bills + inflation coming back = RIP America.
