The Retail Sales Takeaway

Pay attention to growth for each of the 13 specific categories within retail sales. Growth in auto sales will create more U.S. manufacturing jobs. If apparel is increasing, it won’t likely increase U.S. jobs because most of those jobs are outsourced. Growth in hospitality and leisure will create jobs, but most of them are lower paid than manufacturing jobs.
