The Biden Economy: Challenger Job Cuts UP 176% YoY, Q1 Nonfarm Productivity Falls -2.7% QoQ, Unit Labor Costs Almost Double To 6.3% QoQ, Inflation Strengthens (Fed Pausing Rate Hikes Then Cutting)

Biden loves to brag about the greatest economy in history! Sure Joe. Life during Biden.

Challenger jobs cuts in April were 176% year-over-year. Non farm productivity in Q1 fell -2.7% QoQ. And unit labor costs in Q1 almost doubled to 6.3% QoQ, almost doubled from the Q4 2022 figure of 3.2%.

At least The Fed is going to pause it manic rate hikes. Then begin dropping them again.
