The big red flag in the August jobs report: Job LOSSES in retail and restaurants -- likely b/c of the Delta variant.— Heather Long (@byHeatherLong) September 3, 2021
Retail: -29,000 jobs
Job gains elsewhere:
Biz: +74,000 jobs
NOT SHOCKING 235000 jobs added in August versus 728000 expected. Lesson - if you pay people to STAY HOME and cover their rent…wait for it..they won’t be incentivized to work.— Sean Spicer (@seanspicer) September 3, 2021
