    You may be exaggerating just a little

    Retail trade employment increased by 46,000 over the month and by 229,000 over the year. Three industries added jobs in January--clothing and clothing
    stores (+18,000), electronics and appliance stores (+8,000), and furniture and home
    furnishings stores (+6,000).

    Employment in construction rose by 36,000 in January, following little change in
    December. Residential building added 9,000 jobs over the month, and employment
    continued to trend up among residential specialty trade contractors (+11,000). Over
    the past 12 months, construction has added 170,000 jobs.

    Financial activities added 32,000 jobs in January, with gains in real estate (+10,000),
    insurance carriers and related activities (+9,000), and credit intermediation and
    related activities (+9,000). Financial activities added an average of 15,000 jobs per
    month in 2016.

    In January, employment in professional and technical services rose by 23,000, about in line with the average monthly gain in 2016. Over the month, job gains occurred in
    computer systems design and related services (+13,000).

    Employment in food services and drinking places continued to trend up in January
    (+30,000). This industry added 286,000 jobs over the past 12 months.

    Employment in health care also continued to trend up in January (+18,000), following a gain of 41,000 in December. The industry has added 374,000 jobs over the past 12 months.

    Employment in other major industries, including mining and logging, manufacturing,
    wholesale trade, transportation and warehousing, information, and government, showed little change over the month.

    The average workweek for all employees on private non farm payrolls was unchanged at 34.4 hours in January. In manufacturing, the workweek edged up by 0.1 hour to 40.8 hours, while overtime edged down by 0.1 hour to 3.2 hours. The average workweek for production and nonsupervisory employees on private non farm payrolls was 33.6 hours for the sixth consecutive month. (See tables B-2 and B-7.)

    In January, average hourly earnings for all employees on private non farm payrolls rose by 3 cents to $26.00, following a 6-cent increase in December. Over the year, average hourly earnings have risen by 2.5 percent. In January, average hourly earnings of private-sector production and nonsupervisory employees increased by 4 cents to $21.84. (See tables B-3 and B-8.)

    The change in total non farm payroll employment for November was revised down from +204,000 to +164,000, and the change for December was revised up from +156,000 to +157,000. With these revisions, employment gains in November and December combined were 39,000 lower than previously reported. Monthly revisions result from additional reports received from businesses since the last published estimates and from the recalculation of seasonal factors. The annual benchmark process also contributed to the November and December revisions. Over the past 3 months, job gains have averaged 183,000 per month.

    Following an election that was, in large part, an expression of Americans’ deep unhappiness with the economy, President Donald Trump’s promise to bring back job growth and a booming stock market appear to be somewhat at odds with the policies he’s putting in place during the first 20 days of his presidency.

    In a note out this week, Goldman Sachs chief economist Jan Hatzius highlighted Trump’s travel ban and other measures in the president’s “America First” program as injecting potential “downside risks” into the U.S. economy. In fact, Trump may do real damage by making the economy into a petri dish where he experiments with taxes and import tariffs that “could deal a lasting blow to global trade, if U.S. trading partners retaliate, as we expect,” Hatzius said.

    Sure he does. "Believe me." "I promise."
