June Unemployment Figures
The Department of Labor released its June employment data today. The unemployment rate rose to 9.2% from 9.1%. The private sector actually added jobs, although a less-than-expected 57,000. Many of those were offset by a loss of 39,000 government jobs. In short, the labor market still looks pretty stagnant.
