June jobs report: 287,000 jobs added, unemployment up to 4.9%

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 287,000 jobs were added in June with a 0.2-percentage point uptick in the unemployment rate to 4.9. The number of jobs added, even with an artificial approximate 35,000 "additions" from the return of striking Verizon workers, easily topped expectations of 175,000-180,000 jobs added, while unemployment went up slightly more than expected. 

Virtually all of the job gains in June were in the service sector, with manufacturing seeing only 14,000 new jobs, construction seeing no new jobs, and mining and logging shedding 5,000 jobs. Outside of the strike-affected telecommunications sector, the sectors contributing at least 10,000 new jobs were bars and restaurants (21,900 jobs added), temporary help services (15,200 jobs added), hospitals (15,000 jobs added), child day-care services (14,500 jobs added), performing arts and spectator sports (14,000 jobs added), food manufacturing (13,000 jobs added), and amusements/gambling/recreation (11,400 jobs added).

Now Accepting Nominations for NJSA Board

"I became involved with the NJSA Board Of Directors through a referral of a past board member. Serving on the board has rewarded me in many ways not the least of which is that I have the opportunity to help shape our industry through the education of the staffing community in NJ. Active participation in NJSA strengthens our association and thus, strengthens our industry." - Steve Yetter, Atlas Data Systems. 

 "One of the highlights of my career in staffing has been my participation in the association, first as a member and ultimately as a board member. It has provided me with an opportunity to continuously learn about our industry, colleagueship when I needed it most and the ability to give back to an industry that has served me well. I encourage all Staffing Professionals to consider volunteering to join the Board of the NJSA. It will be an extremely rewarding experience." Elaine J. Balady, CPC, President, The Assurance Group.
