January 2020 US Talent Market Monthly
After growth of more than 250,000 jobs in November, the U.S. hiring market slowed in December, with employers adding just 145,000 workers to their payrolls. The previous two months’ job gains were revised downward by a collective 14,000, bringing the average monthly employment gain for the full year 2019 to 176,000. This is similar to the pace of job creation in 2017 (179,000 per month) but less than the average of 223,000 jobs per month in 2018.
