I keep adding the source for this, but the text editing software refuses to accept it. It shows up in the "Preview" mode, but it's deleted in the final version. I had this problem last month too. I don't know what's wrong. Can someone look into this? Thanks.

Earlier, I had heard that the estimate might be as low as 163,000. This is below that.

MarketWatch is not reporting a median forecast for today's ADP report. It is reporting a forecast of a gain of 203,000 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) on Friday.

1. Americans fear a life of 'dead-end crap jobs with crap wages'

 


...
The anger is boiling over
"The anger is boiling over. Enough of the American people have got it through their heads that the American Dream is dead for us," says Jo-Ann, who lives in Pennsylvania. She requested that her last name be withheld for this article so it wouldn't impact her ongoing search for a better job.
The economy is the No. 1 issue on voters' minds even though America is growing, unemployment is incredibly low (4.9%) and gas is cheap.
"I thank God I don't have a kid. I don't know what I would tell them," she says. Her advice to young people is to skip college and learn a trade like plumbing that probably won't be shipped overseas. She supports Sanders. She agrees with him (and Trump) that trade deals like NAFTA are part of the problem.
...
Brinkman grew up in a small South Dakota town. She says people there describe this presidential race as akin to "picking the cleanest turd out of the bunch."

Millennials are now the largest cohort. They take home 20% less than Gen X, have much more debt. And their kids won't have it that good.

Good luck.

The problem is that anyone can do that. You can go to the library and check out a book on how to do your own plumbing. The barriers to entry barely register a pulse.

My vote is to become an electric utility line worker. This is definitely not a do-it-yourself maintenance procedure. You train and train and train to move up in the ranks. Safety is taken extremely seriously. The barriers to entry are high, and the pay reflects this.

Occupational Outlook Handbook: Line Installers and Repairers

Working conditions can be rough - you go out when no one else does. Who, though, is not happy to see that you are there?

3. That's a really good idea. It's hard, really physical, worse than roofing at times, and

 

they train all the time, as you said, because it is very dangerous.

But likely a good future for those that can get in

7. The "learn a trade" like plumbing doesn't mean 'do it yourself' you get certified & start a business

Same for electrician, mechanic, or a RN or many of the jobs in the medical field. People get certified and start to move up in their field.

My farrier earns a huge income, he went to a farrier school in Ill. for 5 months and apprenticed/worked for a while under an expert. Now he 'works' a couple days a week, sends out his own apprentice on many calls. He used to be a teacher, but much prefers doing something he loves and it pays much better.

6. "Her advice to young people is to skip college and learn a trade like plumbing...."

She might be on to something:

Barclays Director Accused of Giving Insider Tips to a Plumber to Remodel His Bathroom

According to the Securities and Exchange Commission, Barclays director Steven McClatchey gave his plumber friend, Gary Pusey, who has also been charged with insider trading, illicit tips on 10 different occasions ahead of public mergers and acquisitions announcements.
....

The information, which included deals involving CVS Health and PetSmart, allowed Pusey to net about $76,000 since early 2014, according to the complaint. In return, Pusey allegedly offered his services for remodeling McClatchey’s bathroom free of charge, and paid McClatchey thousands in cash, which was typically placed in McClatchey’s gym bag while the two were at the marina where the two kept their fishing boats, or handed to him in his garage.
