US Companies Add the Least Jobs in 2 Years: ADP
Private businesses in the United States hired 247K workers in April of 2022, the least since April of 2020 and well below forecasts of 395K. The services-producing sector added 202K jobs, mainly in leisure and hospitality (77K), professional and business (50K), and education and health (48K) sectors. Meanwhile, the goods-producing industry added 46K payrolls, mainly due to manufacturing (25K) and construction (16K). “In April, the labor market recovery showed signs of slowing as the economy approaches full employment. While hiring demand remains strong, labor supply shortages caused job gains to soften for both goods producers and services providers. As the labor market tightens, small companies, with fewer than 50 employees, struggle with competition for wages amid increased costs”, said Nela Richardson, ADP chief economist.
