The LEAP Report® - August Edition

Posted on August 6, 2017 by LEAPROS™ The LEAP Report®

Hello Friends,
 
Thank you for reviewing our monthly employment report designed for Local Employers and Professionals (LEAP).  This complimentary resource provides the latest information about the Southern California job market, along with cutting-edge education and job search materials for the disciplines we serve. If you would like to be added or removed from our monthly mailing list, please let us know.   

Job Market Perspective

We are "knee-deep" in earnings season where 73 percent of the companies in the S&P 500 have reported sales above projections.  As U.S. stocks continue to trade in record territory, increases in consumer spending and business investments are expected to help the economy grow by 2.7% in the third quarter, an increase from 2.6% in the second quarter.  Strong trade relations with foreign countries are also contributing to growth in U.S. exports, which rose twice as fast as imports in the second quarter.  Consistent with this theme, employers once again smashed job growth expectations, adding 209,000 jobs in July, which edged down the national unemployment rate to 4.3%.  Although economic growth has not been robust, the U.S. economy just recorded its 96th month of growth since the last recession, making this the third-longest economic expansion in U.S. history!
