In April, employment growth was led by gains in professional and business services, retail trade, food services and drinking places, and construction.

According to the Employment Situation Summary for April from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), professional and business services added 75,000 jobs. Employment in this industry increased by an average of 55,000 per month over the prior 12 months. Employment growth also continued in temporary help services (+24,000), in management of companies and enterprises (+12,000), and in computer systems design and related services (+9,000).

Employment in construction grew by 32,000 with job growth in heavy and civil engineering construction (+11,000) and residential building (+7,000). Construction added 189,000 jobs over the past year, with almost three-fourths of the gain occurring in the past 6 months.

Mining added 10,000 jobs in April, with most of the gain in support activities for mining (+7,000).

Employment in other major industries, including manufacturing, transportation and warehousing, information, financial activities, and government, changed little over the month.

Retail trade employment rose by 35,000 in April. Although electronics and appliance stores lost 11,000 jobs in April, wholesale trade added 16,000 jobs over the month and has added 126,000 jobs over the year.

Job growth occurred in food and beverage stores (+9,000), general merchandise stores (+8,000) motor vehicle and parts dealers (+6,000) and nonstore retailers (+4,000).

The Employment Situation for May is scheduled to be released on Friday, June 6.

Black Technology

A virtual spokesperson for black technology, BlackEngineer aspires to serve as leading news and information provider on the advancements in black technology with deep insights into black engineering, black entrepreneurs, black education, and historically black colleges and universities (HBCU). In fact, BlackEngineer is one of the very few to promote the achievements of black technology. The Black engineer of the year awards (BEYA) is one of our successful ventures to promote black technology, progress and achievements made in black technology, and the sentiments of the Black community in the US, the UK, Caribbean, and Africa.

 

Black Entrepreneurs

Black technology entrepreneurs are increasingly providing the horsepower that drives the global economy. Over the last two decades, black entrepreneurs have created more jobs, and contributed much more to the economic expansion of the Black community as a whole, than any black pastor or politician. Black entrepreneurs are taking risks and building businesses that generate economic growth and increase prosperity in underserved areas, as more minority-owned and minority-focused businesses emerge, willing to serve the financial needs of Black entrepreneurs. US Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine's annual list of Top Black Technology Entrepreneurs reflects the expanding scope of leading Black entrepreneurs in information technology, homeland security, and defense.
