ADP Data on Private Hiring Suggest U.S. Job Market Is Moderating

Companies adding fewer workers to U.S. payrolls in June than the prior month indicates the job market may be cooling after outsized gains earlier this year, data from the ADP Research Institute showed Thursday.

Key Takeaway

The second-lowest increase in 2017 probably reflects the challenge of finding skilled workers amid a tightening job market, and may also be a sign businesses are holding off on expansion plans until they see more evidence the new administrations plans are translating into legislation that will reduce taxes and spur growth. The ADP report may prompt some economists to adjust their forecasts for the private payrolls tally in the June jobs report due from the Labor Department on Friday, where the median estimate is for a gain of 170,000.

1. I use my own Hinterlands Indicator

Once housing prices nudge upward in the most remote regional areas,
and the weakest towns show some job growth, you can bet the peak
has been reached and the trend will reverse. That's because there are
the Trickle Down areas who see a few raindrops after the deluge blesses
high income areas. Yes we reached this about March or April of this year.
It was partly relief that the election was over, that campaigns were not
begging for cash, but it quickly evaporated for obvious reasons.

3. ADP's Track Record Is Only So So

BLS will be out tomorrow. Those reports showed a strong January-February but soft every period since then.

What I like to do is to take a two month rolling average. For instance, December-January would be the last wholly Obama period, followed by the transition period of January-February with the first wholly Trump period starting with February-March, etc. The purpose isn't a tally of jobs added but a smoothed out trend line that is current.

7. TWSJ.: 5 Things to Watch in the June {Bureau of Labor Statistics} Jobs Report

I'll work on getting a link from Twitter for this.

And here it is:

What to watch in the June jobs report: payrolls, unemployment rates, participation & wages http://on.wsj.com/2t9vpo3





5 Things to Watch in the June Jobs Report

The Labor Department releases its June employment report Friday. Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal expect employers added 174,000 jobs and an unemployment rate of 4.3%.

1 Slower Gains

U.S. employers added 138,000 jobs in May, capping off a relatively soft three-month stretch. Over the past year, nonfarm payrolls have increased by an average of 189,000 jobs per month, a pace that may be difficult to match if workers are increasingly scarce while the labor market tightens. “Filling new openings will continue to become more difficult for employers,” said Mark Simenstad, chief investment strategist at Thrivent Asset Management.
....

3 Underemployment

While 4.3% was the headline unemployment number, the Labor Department tracks alternative rates. A measure known as the U-6 includes Americans too discouraged to search for jobs and part-time workers who would prefer to work full time. It’s fallen more than a percentage point over the past year and most recently landed at 8.4%. Another notch down would be a positive development for American workers.
....

5 Bigger Payday?

Private-sector workers saw their hourly earnings grow 2.5%, on average, in the year through May. Wage gains have been consistent, but there has been little sign of a breakout. It’s not entirely clear if that’s because there is still a pool of workers available to pull off the sidelines, or if employers are simply unable to pass on the increased cost of bigger paychecks. “There has been little sign of wage pressures building over the past year or so,” said Michael Pearce, economist at Capital Economics.
