US private hiring slackens off in September, adds to gloom

On Wednesday, the 2nd of October 2019, a report from US ADP National Employment had revealed that the US private employment slowed down in September, indicating that Trump’s trade war with China, which stressed the US manufacturing activity to post a decade low figure on September, might have begun to spread its cataclysmic wing over the US labour market.

Aside from a downbeat ADP National Employment report for September that showed US private sectors had added 135,000 new jobs in September, the report had also sketched out a much offbeat private payroll data for August, according to a revised US private payroll data on August, US economy had added 1,57,000 new jobs, much-lower than a previously estimated figure of 1,95,000.

Meanwhile, rubbing out a silver lining of US economy which had been enjoying its 123rd straight months of gains, Wednesday’s (October 3rd) ADP National Employment Report said, “Businesses have turned more cautious in their hiring, with small enterprises becoming especially hesitant.

” Apart from that, another US economy report on Wednesday (October 1st) had deepened a darkening outlook over the economy as an indicator of current business condition in New York City had dropped to a more than forty-month low figure in September.

In point of fact, declining job growth could be a potential concern for US economy, as a robust consumer spending alongside a strong labour market had been fuelling up the world’s largest economy’s growth so far despite a 15-month-long tormenting trade row with Beijing.
