U.S. Employment Situation – January 2014

Interesting that construction hiring was so strong given the poor weather.

The BLS reported:

Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 113,000 in January, and the unemployment rate was little changed at 6.6 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment grew in construction, manufacturing, wholesale trade, and mining.
