The US added 199,000 jobs in December, and the unemployment rate fell to 3.9%, marking a new pandemic era low. But Omicron could still slow the recovery.

The country averaged 537,000 jobs added per month in 2021, making for one of the best years for the labor market in *US history*. Wages also grew markedly in 2021 as record numbers of Americans quit their jobs to find better pay and benefits.
