WHAT: Advance comment on the unemployment rate announcement provided by global staffing company Kelly Services.
WHO: Carl Camden, president and chief executive officer, Kelly Services.
DETAILS: The following commentary is offered in advance of the January unemployment rate announcement due Friday from the U.S. Department of Labor: "Despite a pause in economic growth, several positive indicators confirm that there is underlying strength in the U.S. economy. For the first time in three years, the rate of inflation is on the decline. And amid an economic slowdown, the labor market remains tight. "Technical industries, particularly information technology and engineering, are experiencing robust job growth. Continued demand for credentialed professionals in these industries is expected. The manufacturing sector is showing signs of improvement after months of inactivity. "Temporary job creation has been somewhat sluggish in recent months, but we believe this will be a short-term occurrence. "Overall, job creation remains positive and economic expectations point to moderate, but sustainable GDP growth in 2007."
