The US manufacturing job market hasn't been this strong in over 20 years

Last edited Fri Aug 3, 2018, 06:19 PM - Edit history (2)

President Donald Trump said during the 2016 campaign that he would "restore manufacturing in the United States." The most recent jobs report gives him something to point to on that promise.

While Friday's July jobs report disappointed overall on its topline numbers, the release showed that the manufacturing sector added another 37,000 jobs, the highest number since December.

The latest addition also capped the strongest 12-month period for manufacturing jobs growth since 1995. Over the past year, the US has added 327,000 manufacturing jobs, the highest 12-month total for manufacturing job growth since April 1995, when the number was 345,000.

It's unclear exactly the reasons for the job boom in manufacturing, but the National Association of Manufacturers appeared to give Trump's agenda some credit in a statement released Friday.
