Vaccines, fiscal stimulus power US non-farm payrolls to seven-month peak in March

On Friday, US Labour Department’s closely observed job report had unveiled that the US economy had engendered the highest number of jobs in more than seven months in March, as inoculation drives perked up and the Government had meted out additional fiscal stimulus, pointing towards a beginning of what could be the strongest US economic performance since 1984.

Apart from that, in the day’s Labour Department data comes over the heels of an ADP National Employment Report released on yesterday that had shown American businesses had added the highest number of jobs in more than 37 years last month, laying the frameworks of an economic boom.

Nevertheless, still, taking account of March’s non-farm payroll data, US labour market falls short of at least four million jobs to-date, which were lost in the meadows of pandemic mayhem last year.

US non-farm payroll surges to seven-month peak

In tandem, as almost all industries had boosted up hiring last month, welcoming the job growth report, President Joe Biden said to the reporters late in the day, “The first two months of our administration has seen more new jobs created than the first two months of any administration in history.

It’s a reflection of two things going on here, a new economic strategy focused on building from the bottom to the middle up, and one that puts government on the side of working people. According to US Labour Department, non-farm payrolls soared by 916,000 jobs last month, marking up its largest gain since late-August, while February data was revised higher to 468,000 jobs instead a previously reported reading of 379,000.

Nonetheless, US labour market remained 8.4 million jobs below from its February 2020 peak.
