Hello, Friends!

Job Market Update

Despite international trade tensions and rising inflation, the US job market continues to soar – producing over 200,000 jobs in April, and driving down unemployment to its lowest level in nearly 18 years! This is encouraging news considering economic growth in the first quarter was tempered by a decline in consumer spending, which normally drives the US economy. Interestingly, it was corporate tax cuts that sustained economic growth in the first quarter, which bolstered business confidence and investment spending. Duke University's Fuqua School of Business released the first quarter CFO Business Outlook survey, explaining that both the tax cuts and Jobs Act  increased CFO optimism to its highest level since 1966. According to the survey, 66% of US CFOs said corporate tax cuts will help their companies over the next three years - 40% plan to boost wages, and 38% will increase hiring in 2018. The proportion of companies revealing they were having difficulty hiring and retaining talent remained at a two-decade high.
