There is little evidence of any wage acceleration in any major sector. More in the latest Jobs Byte

Involuntary Part-Time Employment as a Share of Total Employment Print

October 3, 2014

While the number of people involuntarily working part-time fell by 174,000 in September, it is still extraordinarily high given the unemployment rate. As a percent of the labor force it is still far above the level at any point in the last recession or even at the start of 1994 when the unemployment rate was 6.6 percent.


Post-Recession Employment Growth for Men Age 25-54 Print

September 5, 2014

The remarkably weak GDP growth in this recovery is consistent with the extraordinarily weak job growth. While many have tried to explain the weakness on demographics, even if we restrict the focus to prime age men, employment is performing far worse than in prior recoveries. More on the latest employment data in this month's Jobs Byte.
