Women in U.S. Work Force Climbs to Highest Since 2002

The proportion of prime-age women in the U.S. workforce jumped in August to its highest level in more than 17 years, reversing a surprising decline since the start of the year.

Labor force participation for women 25 to 54 years old advanced to 76.3%, up a full percentage point from July and the highest since February 2002, the Labor Department’s employment report showed Friday. Participation had been declining since reaching 76% in January despite the lowest overall unemployment rate in almost half a century.

“In some ways it was more perplexing that it had fallen earlier in the year in a very strong labor market,” said Julia Coronado, president and founder of MacroPolicy Perspectives LLC. “It’s more of a catch-up to where we should have been.”

Coronado said the jump might have been modestly boosted by hiring for the U.S. census but not enough to substantially explain the rise. A Labor Department report earlier this week projected prime-age women labor participation at 76.1% in 2028.

Participation among prime-aged men was little changed, rising 0.1 percentage point to 89% in August.

IMO, a large part of the reason the kids are turning out as they are in this day and age. Raised by a "daycare" and Ritalin instead of a mom and dad.

2. Trump really hates women.

He wants them to have careers and not be able to sit at home watching Oprah every day. The bastard. Next you will tell me unemployment is so low in the African American community there aren’t enough rent a mobs available to riot over Trumps hate at women!
