When you have such a massive amount if jobs created in such a short time, of course it's going to slow up a bit, everyone has a job already....Well everyone apart from basement dwelling communists skum like antifa, if it's not free they ain't interested.

Job creation stats are meaningless. Brick and mortar retail is dying. How many people are actually unemployed or under employed? How many people are working more than one job? The gov't is measuring the wrong things and "adjusting" those figures for political good news stats.

Is talking to business owners is an indicator I wonder how many jobs lost are due to minimum wage. People forget online doesn't have nearly as many staff overheads.

When unemployment reaches 0%, the headline will be "no new jobs in forecast".
