I keep adding the source for this, but the text editing software refuses to accept it. I don't know what's wrong. Can someone look into this? Thanks.

4. From the linked article:

Payrolls for businesses with 49 or fewer employees increased by 95,000 jobs in December, up from November’s downwardly revised 72,000. Employment among companies with 50-499 employees increased by 65,000 jobs, up about 10 percent from last month. Employment at large companies – those with 500 or more employees – came in at 97,000 an increase from the upwardly revised 80,000 jobs added in November. Companies with 500-999 added 39,000 jobs, while companies with over 1,000 employees gained 58,000 jobs.

Goods-producing employment rose by 23,000 jobs in December, well up from a downwardly revised -2,000 the previous month. The construction industry added 24,000 jobs, which was roughly in line with the 21,000 average monthly jobs gained for the year. Meanwhile, manufacturing stayed in positive territory for the second straight month adding 2,000 jobs.

Service-providing employment rose by 234,000 jobs in December, up from an upwardly revised 213,000 in November. The ADP National Employment Report indicates that professional/business services contributed 66,000 jobs, the largest increase in this sector in 2015. Trade/transportation/utilities grew by 38,000, off a bit from an upwardly revised 41,000 the previous month. The 13,000 new jobs added in financial activities were right in line with the average for the year.

5. You do know the BLS tracks median income right?

And that it shows a solid trend of small but steady increases lately whether in nominal or real terms?

6. That's a pretty strong jobs report

If it matches the official numbers that come out on Friday, then it may spur the Fed to raise interest rates again the next time they meet. Of course they are also going to consider world events as well, which has been pretty bad news lately.
