Private-sector hiring skyrocketed in August, according to data released Wednesday.

Employers added a seasonally adjusted 237,000 jobs during the month, payroll processor ADP said. That was a big gain from the 178,000 jobs ADP reported in July, and which it revised up to 201,000. It also easily beat the Econoday consensus forecast of 185,000.

Small businesses added 48,000 employees, medium-sized businesses added 74,000 workers, and large businesses added 115,000 people. Nearly all the job gains came from the service sector, which produced 204,000 jobs.

1. Trump will immediately take credit for this surge

even if it's because of Jeff Bezos' Amazon and the Obama economy.

2. Amazon left me high and dry

on an auto parts order, took them 3 weeks to tell me they couldn't fill it, so I had
to go custom install route. Would have had more options if they had informed me
a day or two after I placed the order. This is why I don't bother much with Amazon.
