'¯\_(ツ)_/¯': Economists React To August Jobs Report On Twitter

National Economy

Nonfarm payroll employment increased by 130,000 jobs in August, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday, marking the country's 107th straight month of employment gains. 

The unemployment rate held at 3.7%.


Notable job gains ocurred in healthcare and financial activities, but commercial real estate-related industries showed little change. Job growth in transportation and warehousing, leisure and hospitality, construction and manufacturing has abated in 2019 compared to 2018.

Here's how economists and others reacted to the jobs report on Twitter.
