Originally published at:

The American economy continued to post huge gains and smash expectations in September, with new data showing the unemployment rate for Hispanic-Americans at record lows and manufacturing confidence at record highs.

“The national seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate for Hispanics and Latinos in the U.S. labor force fell to the lowest level on record in September of 2018, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data released Friday show,” writes CNS News.

The strong data was echoed by a recent report from the Washington Examiner; adding the US manufacturing confidence index posted “one of the best outlooks” in the survey’s 20-year history.

“Nearly 93 percent of manufacturers are projecting further expansion for their businesses, and positive sentiment among smaller companies is up to 91.3 percent, according to a quarterly survey from the National Association of Manufacturers,” writes the Washington Examiner.

“We used to be happy when that number would get up to the mid- and high 50s," said the group’s CEO Jay Timmons.
