May's Employment Report Is a Barn Burner!

J: I really wanted to use the phrase "barn burner" to describe May's employment report, but turns out I've been scooped. The use of the very colorful term "barnburner" to describe a phenomenally robust increase in employment appeared in a New York Times article on April 1 about the February data: Job growth probably slowed in March. Last month’s jobs report was a barn burner: Employers added 313,000 jobs in February, the most in one month since 2016, and the strong labor market drew hundreds of thousands of Americans into the work force. March’s data, due from the Labor Department on Friday, is unlikely to match those highs... However, it seems so appropriate for the May data that I'll use
