Just for your clarification, these numbers have nothing to do with politics.  The US Bureau of Labor Statistics has published these every month, since their existence.  We do not wear our politics in this forum.  

It bodes well for real estate and the economy.  More people will be able to buy homes, more builders will build homes, and more people will be able to feed their families.  Employment has nothing to do with politics.

In the mean time(short term wise), the interest rate hike causes affordability issues esp to first time home buyers.  The quality of upgrade will go up a lot more than before. We should have a good mid term Nov election,

wish it would creep into our area.  5.3 locally.  And that's definitely under reported if you include people who have given up looking and lost all benefits from prior jobs.  So much industry closed here that has not been replaced.

We are feeling it here in TN. Employers are having tough times trying to hire laborers. Most businesses have signs on the door about hiring. This will drive up labor cost which will drive up cost of goods. Inflation is on the horizon.

Yet with these positive numbers, the equities markets still reset Thursday and Friday. Let's see what the FED does over the next 12 months with interest rates. That will control  to a higher degree.

Yes, it's good that unemployment rate is 3.7%, but home/condo sales are also down in areas affected by new tax laws and by rising interest rates (e.g. NY, CT). Banks are laying off mortgage bankers due to low new purchase and refinancing demand.
