Labor Markets

(PDF PDF icon)

June employment bounced back from losses in May, adding 268,000 jobs. Despite the rosier overall picture, manufacturing and mines continued to cut their payrolls. Manufacturing has lost nearly half a million jobs since employment peaked in March 1998. Mining has lost more than 10% of its jobs (65,000) in the last year.
