Ignoring all the noise in Washington, U.S. companies continue to hire. The biggest problem is finding available workers.

Russia, Obamacare, obscene White House staff fights — forget about all that. Thankfully all the dysfunction in Washington has failed to discourage companies from hiring. The government this week is likely to report the economy added around 185,000 new jobs in July, keeping unemployment near a 16-year low of 4.4%. That’s good news for the rest of America.
