  • Jobless claims decreased by 22k to 222k (est. 240k), the lowest since March 1973
  • Period included Columbus Day holiday, giving persons one less day to file claims
  • Continuing claims fell by 16k to 1.89m in week ended Oct. 7 (data reported with one-week lag)
  • Four-week average of initial claims, a less-volatile measure than the weekly figure, dropped to 248,250 from 257,750


Text from FBI Attorney Lisa Page to FBI Agent Strozk.
“Trump’s not ever going to become president, right? Right!?” Page texted Strzok in August 2016.
“No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok responded.

Great news. A strong jobs market is part of the legacy of the Obama era.


We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.

I hope the trend continues, and at the same time we see a rise in worker pay.
