( Breitbart) Coming off a jobs report that figured higher than analysts expected, the Trump jobs boom is continuing with big-box retailer Home Depot announcing that it plans to add up to 80,000 new employees nationwide, perhaps by spring.
After revamping its online application process, the hardware and home improvement supply company announced plans to expand this year, the Staten Island Advance reported.
“Applying for a job at the world’s largest home improvement retailer now takes about 15 minutes using any device, thanks to a shorter application and mobile-optimized ‘careers’ site at careers.homedepot.com,” Home deport said in a statement.
Job openings will include customer service and sales, lot associates, receiving, store support, cashier positions, as well as jobs in the Merchandising Execution Team — those responsible for setting up store displays.
The announcement came as part of the company’s new “Behind The Apron” series aimed at telling the stories of employees
The announcement by Home Depot comes on the heels of a higher than expected jobs report as hiring across the country measures in at its highest level in three years.
On Wednesday the federal government reported that the number of private payrolls increased by 298,000 in February, well above the original forecast of 187,000. January also saw levels of hiring revised upward to 261,000 jobs created.
The country has experienced higher growth since Trump took office. Only a day ago, for instance, President Trump praised Exxon Mobil for its plans to hire up to 45,000 new employees in facilities in Texas and Louisiana.
AMERICANS SO CONFIDENT WITH TRUMP ECONOMY THEY’RE QUITTING THEIR JOBS FOR BETTER ONES AT FASTEST RATE IN 16 YEARS
- More Americans are quitting jobs now than any time since February 2001
- January’s quit rate was 3.2 million, compared to 2.9 million the previous year
- Quit rate dropped massively from 2007-2010 as the economic crisis led to layoffs
- There are other signs that the US is growing economically this year
- CEO and small business expectations are both up according to surveys
- And more people aged 25-54 are working now than any time since 2011
( Daily Mail ) More Americans are ditching their jobs than at any point since 2001, according to new statistics from the Bureau of Labor Standards (BLS).
In January 2017, 3.2 million people in the US gave their bosses the boot – up from 2.9 million in January 2016, and the highest since February 2001.
That’s the latest in a seven-year-long-climb from the grim lows of mid-2009, and a sign of a confident economy, Yahoo News reported.
Trump is creating REAL economic boom! Under Obama, unemployment rate went down because people stopped looking for jobs that’s why 94 million Americans were out of labor force despite of decrease of unemployment rate every year. With Trump, unemployment will go down because jobs are growing from every sector and Americans would be employed.

OBAMA MOCKED TRUMP JOBS BOOM PROMISE! 298,000 JOBS CREATED IN FEBRUARY BIGGEST SURGE IN 6 YEARS, MORE THAN EXPECTED
Obama mocked Trump last June on his promise of bringing back jobs, ‘What magic wand do you have?’ Hey Obama, looks like Trump has a magic wand because jobs are booming left and right. As what Trump tweeted after ADP jobs report:
‘Great news. We are only just beginning. Together, we are going to
- U.S. companies added a whopping 298,000 new jobs in February, beating economists’ expectations by more than 100,000.
- January’s new-jobs numbers were also revised upward on Wednesday from 246,000 to 261,000.
- Total private payrolls increased an eye-popping 298,000 in the month, beating the consensus forecast for a 180,000 rise, and outpacing the strong 261,000 increase in January, which was revised up from the initial figure.
- It was the biggest increase in private employment since April 2011.
- But the highlight of the data was the goods-producing industries which posted the biggest increase in the history of the report, going back to April 2002. The sector added 106,000 workers last month, while services firms increased 193,000.
- ADP reported a gain of 32,000 manufacturing jobs, taking the sector to its highest level since January 2009.
- The ADP National Employment Report showed on Wednesday that private payrolls grew by 298,000 jobs last month, the largest increase since December 2015. The gain was well above economists’ expectations for a 190,000 increase.
- Construction payrolls jumped by 66,000 jobs last month, the sector’s second largest gain since the ADP series started 15 years ago. The surge likely reflected unseasonably mild weather that kept crews at building sites.
FLASHBACK! In June 2016, Obama mocked Trump about the Carrier Corp jobs in Indiana.
“When somebody says like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back. Well how exectly are you going to do that? What are you going to do? There’s uh-uh no answer to it. He just says. “I’m going to negotiate a better deal.” Well how? How exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer.
( USA Today ) For Lowe’s, a hub for garden equipment and building supplies, springtime brings the type of rush its department store peers experience during the holidays. So to meet the demands of its busiest season, it will be hiring over 45,000 additional workers.
The seasonal jobs will include loaders to get products into the hands of shoppers who order online, as well as cashiers, sales people and assemblers who can help put together products for consumers browsing at an actual store.
“Our goal is to meet customers wherever they are, whether in stores, online or at home, with the support, inspiration and solutions they need to tackle their home projects,” Jennifer Weber, Lowe’s chief human resources officer, said in a statement. “Seasonal employees play an important role in helping customers during this peak period.’’
There’s a chance that some of the temporary positions may become permanent. Last year, almost 50% of Lowe’s seasonal staff went on to become part-time or full-time employees.
That’s likely welcome news in the retail sphere, which has been rocked by a steady stream of store closures and layoffs.

JOBS ROARING! HYUNDAI & KIA $3 BILLION INVESTMENT IN U.S. – NOT EVEN PRESIDENT YET, TRUMP ADDS/SAVES 1.2 MILLION JOBS
Gateway Pundit – Hyundai-Kia has announced that they will be investing over $3 Billion in the United States to boost their manufacturing efforts and to avoid getting hit by a massive tariff that will be imposed on companies that manufacture outside the U.S. and export their products into the country
Earlier today, The Gateway Pundit reported that Donald Trump has already created/saved over 1.2 million jobs in the U.S. despite not being sworn in to the Oval Office until Friday.
From The Detroit News:
Hyundai Motor Co. and affiliate Kia Motors Corp. said they will spend $3.1 billion in the U.S. in the next five years, joining other vehicle manufacturers in announcing investment plans amid threats from President-elect Donald Trump of higher levies on auto imports from Mexico.
The planned U.S. investment by South Korea’s two largest automakers is about 50 percent more than the $2.1 billion they spent in the previous five-year period, Hyundai Motor President Chung Jin-haeng told reporters in Seoul on Tuesday. The group is considering building a new factory in the U.S. and may produce Hyundai Motor’s upscale Genesis vehicles and a U.S.-specific SUV in the country, said the executive, who also oversees the strategic planning for Kia.
“We expect a boost in the U.S. economy and increased demand for various models as President-elect Trump follows through on his promise to create one million jobs in five years,” Chung said. “We will actively consider introducing new models that have increasing demand and profits.”
Hyundai Motor and Kia join a growing list of automakers announcing investments in the U.S., even though they have yet to be singled out by Trump. Toyota Motor Corp., Ford Motor Co. and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV said this month they’ll spend on U.S. plants after the president-elect threatened for months to slap Mexico-built vehicles with a 35 percent import tax. Carmakers are eager to cooperate with the incoming administration as they prepare to ask for favors including weaker fuel economy rules and lower corporate taxes.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Japanese electronics company Panasonic and U.S. electric car maker Tesla said Tuesday they plan to begin production of solar cells at a factory in Buffalo, New York.
The two companies said they finalized an agreement calling for Tokyo-based Panasonic to pay capital costs for the manufacturing. Palo Alto, California-based Tesla made a “long-term purchase commitment” to Panasonic.
Their statement gave no financial figures.
The factory in Buffalo is under development by SolarCity Corp., a San Mateo, California-based solar panel company owned by Tesla. The photovoltaic cells and modules will be used in solar panels for non-solar roof products and solar glass tile roofs that Tesla plans to begin making, the announcement said.
Production is due to begin in mid-2017. Tesla said it will create 1,400 jobs in Buffalo, 500 in manufacturing and plans further expansion in Buffalo.
