“The labor market continues an upward trend of acceleration and growth, posting the strongest reading since September 2020,” said Nela Richardson, chief economist, ADP. “Service providers have the most to gain as the economy reopens, recovers and resumes normal actvities and are leading job growth in April. While payrolls are still more than 8 million jobs short of pre-COVID-19 levels, job gains have totaled 1.3 million in the last two months after adding only about 1 million jobs over the course of the previous five months.
emphasis added
This was below the consensus forecast of 830,000 for this report.

The BLS report will be released Friday, and the consensus is for 978 thousand non-farm payroll jobs added in April. The ADP report has not been very useful in predicting the BLS report.
