US Job Growth Seen Picking Up in January
US jobs report for January is projected to show a payroll increase of 160 thousand, after a smaller-than-expected 145 thousand rise last month. Private sector employment is likely to grow by 150 thousand while manufacturing is seen shedding 5 thousand jobs. Markets also anticipate the jobless rate to hold steady at 3.5 percent and wage growth to pick up slightly to 3 percent on an annual basis. The closely watched employment report comes in as China's virus outbreak disrupts trade and Boeing's decision to suspend production of the 737 MAX weigh on manufacturing. The annual benchmark revisions to payrolls will also attract attention as job gains from April 2018 through March 2019 are expected to be revised lower.

The decline can be partially due to a later-than-normal Thanksgiving Day in 2019, which could have shifted hiring of seasonal workers, and to a boost in November from the return of workers from a GM strike. In 2019, payroll employment rose by 2.1 million, the least since 2011.
