The construction drop is from the housing drop (big surprise). The manufacturing bleed has been going on for the last 4 years. The US is going through a transition to high tech manufacturing and losing lower tech manufacturing. The auto companies poor business decisions aren’t helping here. Education/health +41,000.

April Fool's Day
This daily blog will focus on financial matters, and is written by a professional with 43 years of real time experience. 4/2/05 Liquidity Excesses The on-going creation of excess liquidity and credit will cause our economic system to lose consciousness. For example, how long can we generate close to $1.2 trillion in mortgage credit on a yearly basis? Doug Noland: "The market pricing mechanism cannot self-correct in an era of uncontrolled finance."

Bush could take away working people's hard-fought 40-hour workweek and overtime pay—with no meaningful increased flexibility to help workers balance demands of jobs and family. Under the Bush proposal to change the Fair Labor Standards Act, some 8 million workers, including police officers, nurses, store supervisors and many other workers, would face unpredictable work schedules and reduced pay because of an increased demand for extra hours for which employers would not have to compensate workers, according to an Economic Policy Institute report . The Bush proposal also ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The Employment Situation During 1986: Job Gains Continue ...
Moderate employment gains continued in 1986, as the U.S. economy completed its fourth year of expansion following the deep 1981-82 recession. Unemployment declined slightly during the year, repeating the pattern of slow improvement evident in 1985. For all of 1986, the civilian unemployment rate averaged 7.0 percent--down from 7.2 percent in 1985 and 7.5 percent in 1984.

End bias against farmworkers
Farmworkers are the only hourly employees in the state who are not paid overtime after eight hours of labor in a standard 40-hour workweek, a special, discriminatory status that has endured for decades. Now California has an opportunity to right this wrong. State Sen. Dean Florez (D-Shafter) has successfully shepherded a bill through the Legislature that would give those who do the backbreaking work of picking fruits, vegetables and nuts equal status with other workers. Opposition to the legislation, predictably, comes primarily from the farm lobby, which maintains that the current rule granting overtime only after 10 hours in ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
