While the net revision of the previous two months was 15 thousand, the private sector increased by 906 thousand after the 892 thousand increase in the previous month.

While the participation rate came from 61.4% to 61.7%, the change in household employment came from the previous 275 thousand to 2.243.000. The manufacturing sector continues to increase employment, after the 60 thousand increase in the previous month, there is an increase of 38 thousand. However, as the virus outbreak will hit the service industry deeper, the real slowdown in the economy will come from this channel. Average hourly earnings are around 0.1% monthly and 4.5% annually. At this rate, we will see artificial increases as the economy slows down, because the deepening of the crisis will not reflect a real income growth effect, as low-wage employment will still be left out.
