The jobs report was released today showing a continued decline in the hiring trend in the US.  Along with the paltry 126,000 new jobs created last month, the February number was revised down from 264,000 to 195,000.  The hiring trend is definitely down as more and more workers are leaving the workforce and a greater percentage of companies are skirting  the Affordable Care Act by contracting their labor.  Interestingly enough, the Unemployment Rate stayed at 5.5%.
