February Job Market Update: What Are The Wage Growth Expectations?

As the labor market sees healthier days, economists remain optimistic about future job creation. Fox Business News provided a brief commentary based on upcoming projections across key verticals. As the EPI (Economic Policy Institute) revealed in a market review last month; KPIs (Key Performance Indicators), particularly minimum wage will require keen attention as job market conditions improve. Taking into account all these factoring determinants, analysts believe the nation will report as many as 200,000 jobs.

With the monthly jobs report for February expected within a week, market analysts are anxious to learn about upcoming economic calendar highlights. Unemployment rates haven’t seen any significant improvement in recent months, based on the performance data of previous reports. However, the availability of 210,000 jobs this month is surely an impressive comeback compared to January’s unsatisfactory report. Unfortunately, economists reported only 151,000 job creations, which was an estimated 20% lower percentile than predicted. With this, the January report forecasted a 2.5% climb in wage growth compared to the previous year-to-year analysis. Additionally, the month’s unemployment rate saw a significant decline of 4.9%, particularly the lowest reported in the last eight years.

Economists are almost certain the U.S. FED (Federal Reserve) will deliberate on hiking wage interest rates when the board meets in March. While February jobs statistics is pending, it won’t influence their decision, according to analysts opinion. The nation’s central bank decision will remain idempotent irrespective of what the report reads. Another KPI that’ll greatly influence the pricing oil is the pending EIA (Energy Information Administration) Petroleum weekly report due on Wednesday. Car sales performance has seen improvements too, and it’ll greatly strengthen the growing job market.
