Can our growth survive the sequester?
Payrolls expanded by 236,000 last month and the jobless rate ticked down to 7.7%, its lowest rate since late 2008, outperforming analysts expectations. Hours worked per week increased and hourly pay rose as well, suggesting a potential improvement in employer demand (though, as noted, some indicators in the report point the other way—these monthly reports are never an analytical slamdunk).

Your Company's Next Health Plan: Drop the Doughnut
You want to please the boss? Put down the doughnut.

After all, in the last four decades, manufacturing has suffered a bloodletting never before seen in U.S. history.
