    The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for June was revised down from +248,000

    to +208,000, and the change for July was revised down from +157,000 to +147,000. With

    these revisions, employment gains in June and July combined were 50,000 less than

    previously reported. (Monthly revisions result from additional reports received from

    businesses and government agencies since the last published estimates and from the

    recalculation of seasonal factors.) After revisions, job gains have averaged 185,000

    per month over the last 3 months.

    -----------------------------------
    I wonder if these numbers will get revised as well. Also inflation is going up.

    Let's see if you notice the spike in unemployment after Obama almost spent a trillion dollars after his stimulous and no spike after Trump's tax cuts.....

    If you are saying the Bush/Obama stimulus was a short term thing I agree.

    If I say unemployment is on a long slide from ~10% to the new low do you agree?
