U.S. Talent Market Monthly

U.S. hiring trends continued on a slowing path in August, with employers adding 130,000 workers to their payrolls. Excluding the 34,000 workers added in the government sector—largely attributable to temporary hiring for the 2020 Census—private sector employment rose by 96,000 during the month. The previous two months’ employment gains were revised down by a combined 20,000, bringing average monthly job growth to just over 158,000 for 2019 year-to-date.
