Quikrete Industry Dashboard
How low can the unemployment rate go?
The biggest movement on the latest edition of the Quikrete Industry Dashboard is in the Consumer Watch area, where the unemployment rate fell from a super low 3.7% to an even lower 3.5%. That’s the lowest since December 1969.
However, while economists expected some 145,000 job gains, the numbers show less – 136,000.
Elsewhere on the dashboard, hardware and building supply stocks remain volatile. And gas prices are holding steady between last month and last year.
