Following last Friday’s disappointing payrolls report, the punditry was understandably focused on the silver lining: the 0.4% monthly jump in average hourly earnings, which translated into a 2.9%  annual increase in hourly earnings – the hottest since the financial crisis. The strong increase in earnings was quickly interpreted by the sellside as the latest indication rising inflation has arrived, and that more rate hikes are imminent.
