U.S. Added 164,000 Jobs in April; Unemployment at 3.9%


According to numbers out this morning, it's official, the nation's unemployment rate is the lowest it has been in more than 17 years. 

The Labor Department says the unemployment rate for April was 3.9%, the lowest since December of 2000.

The economy added 164,000, versus the 191,000 most analysts had predicted, however, that marks a solid come back from March's upwardly revised but still disappointing 135,000.

How much do you think the Trump Administration's new tax laws play into these stats?  What factors do you see keeping the unemployment rate this low?  Does it continue this way for the remainder of 2018?
