Private-sector employment increased by 215,000 from November to December, on a seasonally adjusted basis. (The estimated gain from October to November was revised up from the initial estimate of 118,000, to 148,000).
Small businesses (1-49 employees) +25,000
Medium businesses (50-499 employees) +102,000
Large businesses (500 or more employees) +87,000
That’s decent but not stellar news, given the size of the jobs gap.
