Just shockingly bad on every dimension I have glanced at.

  • Private payrolls up olny 54K.
  • Government down 39K.
  • Government cut at all levels.
  • Construction down
  • Manufacturing flat
  • Retail flat
  • Financial Activities down
  • Education and Health flat – yes flat
  • Utilities flat
  • Information flat
  • Wholesale Trade up a smidge


The only bright spots where professional and technical employment growing at 24K and Leisure and Hospitality growing at 34K. Though a surprising amount of the latter looks to be gambling.

I’ll sift through and maybe have more later
