The latest jobs report from the Labor Department indicates that the U.S.
labor market continues to show strength, with 311,000 jobs added to the workforce in February.
This is slightly less than in January, but still better than expected.
However, the unemployment rate did tick up slightly to 3.6 percent.
According to Sarah House, a senior economist at Wells Fargo, this signals that businesses are still hungry for workers and that workers are coming back into the labor market, which is encouraging.
Sarah House also recently released a report that found a record 52 percent of women were unmarried or separated in 2021.
This has had a significant impact on the economy, particularly as never-married women have higher participation rates than any group of women.
This increase in single women is helping to fill the void of employers who are still struggling to find workers.
The shift towards delayed marriage and more women going to college is seen as a key factor in this trend.
Overall, the U.S.
economy is still in pretty good shape, but inflation remains a concern.
