Minneapolis, MN – The consensus estimate for Friday’s jobs report seems to be that after accounting for the large decline in temporary census workers, the U.S. economy continued to add jobs in July. Most forecasters, however, have tempered their positive but modest outlook and are expecting to see a continuation of slow but steady recovery in the jobs market. While any growth in private sector jobs would be welcomed, we are much more bullish and expect to see a far stronger jobs report than people are anticipating. Based on LinkUp’s July jobs report and combined with a solid LinkUp report from June, Friday’s BLS report will show that job growth accelerated dramatically last month.
