This morning the ADP National Employment Report for March was released and it showed that private-sector employment increased by 209,000 from February to March. The report showed solid growth for manufacturers stating that manufacturing employment increased by 23,000.
While this is positive news for manufacturers we still have a long way to go. Manufacturers are still facing a growing number of headwinds which are impacting their ability to compete and grow. Energy costs are increasing and the regulatory burden continues to grow.
The BLS employment numbers are out on Friday so stay tuned for more information following the report’s release.
