My jobs analysis slightly delayed today

Summary:
Going on CNBC this AM at 8 to discuss jobs report until after the 8:30 release so my analysis will be slightly delayed. Consensus is for about 190K on payrolls, unemp to tick up to 4.6%. My forecast comes in a bit lower than consensus and I’ll be watching for an upward revision to March’s low 98K initial print. Also, wage growth/LFPR/manufacturing/retail–much to discuss!
