THIS TIME, THE WEATHER DIDN'T AFFECT JOB-GROWTH NEGATIVELY, THANKFULLY
News by Editorial Team 05 Oct 2018
Hurricane Florence didn’t have an adverse effect on the labor market as per the Labor Department. The belief that extreme weather dilutes foreseeable job growth, didn’t hold up. Rather, the week ending September 29 saw seasonal jobless claims reach 207,00, a drop of 8,000 against last years’. While the signs are positive, it needs to be noted that North & South Carolinas are yet to file their claims, something which could make the jobless claims picture turn on its head.
