The Force is strong in the job market

From the Marketplace Desk of Correlation is not necessarily Causation, but it sure is interesting:

Buried in that jobs report this morning was this  plucked out by the Wall Street Journal, I should say.

The motion picture industry added 15,000 jobs last month.

15,000 after averaging a mere 700 a month for the past year or so.

Figure it out yet?

The Force has awakened indeed.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
