We’ve just celebrated the best Labor Day weekend in decades.
No, I’m not talking about all of those holiday sales – or my backyard barbecue (though it was pretty awesome).
Instead, I’m talking about the numbers the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics unveiled on Friday, Sept. 1, a few days before Labor Day.
According to the BLS, the nation created more than 200,000 jobs in August, beating forecasts. The unemployment rate remained at a decades-low 3.9%.
On top of that, wages are finally on the rise after stagnating since the recovery began almost a decade ago. With a 2.9% year-on-year growth, wages climbed at their fastest rate since June 2009.
But here’s the thing. There’s something about this jobs boom that Wall Street isn’t telling you about.
Independent contractors also find themselves in the midst of a huge rally.
A new report says that the barely-talked-about freelance workforce is growing three times faster than overall labor growth. Right now, it contributes $1.4 trillion to our economy.
This trend is bound to shake up employment as we know it.
And I’ve uncovered a great tech leader poised to crush the market thanks to this unstoppable trend.
