The US employment grew at a strong pace in November, confirming the country’s healthy economic state, which analysts see not requiring the Donald Trumps’ proposed fiscal stimulus, even with the moderate pay growth. The Labour Department showed that non-farm payrolls added 228K positions, while average hourly earnings increased 0.2% in the reported month, boosting the yearly rise in wages to 2.5%. Data also showed the jobless rate unaltered at a 17-year low of 4.1%.
