5.8 million U.S. jobs added in May, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said today.
That’s up from a record 3.5 million jobs added last month.
Here are the key figures: March jobs growth: 8.2% to 10.7% (up from 7.5%) April jobs growth to April: 8,200 jobs to 9,000 (down from 10,600) May jobs growth : 7.9% to 8.6% (down by about 1,000 jobs) June jobs growth by month: 7,600 jobs to 6,700 (up by 1,600, or about a 0.1% increase) July jobs growth rate to July: 1.9%, up by more than half a percent.
And that’s just for May.
We’ll add to this list as more data comes in.
(The Labor Department did not provide its monthly job report today, but we expect to see a full-year report from the Bureau next week.)
This is just one example of the ups and downs that the jobs market has experienced this year.
But it’s important to note that job growth has not been uniformly positive.
Over the past few years, the labor market has been in steady decline, and the last time we saw unemployment hit its peak was during the Great Recession.
In this post, we’ll focus on what’s happening in terms of job growth for the next few months.
What are the job losses?
According to the Bureau, the number of jobs lost in April was 3.6 million.
That was the second-largest monthly loss since the recession ended in December 2007.
That loss is still the largest since April 2009, when the Bureau’s unemployment rate hit 4.9%.
So far in May the number is up slightly to 4.4 million, but it’s still below its peak in September of 2009, which was 4.7 million.
The overall job loss rate has been rising steadily since February 2017.
April saw a 6.9 million job loss, the highest since April 2007.
May’s job loss is 5.2 million, the largest monthly gain since May 2009.
And this is just the Labor Department’s count, as it does not include all the private sector job losses.
What’s happening to paychecks?
Here’s what you need to know about the job market today: Paychecks are starting to hit the streets, with employers reporting their payrolls to the Federal Reserve on Wednesday.
That means we’ll see the final payroll figures for April and May.
The unemployment rate for May is 4.8%.
So how are people paying their bills?
The economy has been struggling to keep up with inflation, with wage growth slowing and payrolls stagnating.
But that’s starting to change.
Wage growth is forecast to rise in April and is set to increase slightly in May.
And the unemployment rate has fallen to 4% in April, down from 5% in May and 7% in November.
But the gap between the two rates is still significant.
In fact, it’s the biggest monthly difference since the depths of the Great Depression.
As of May, there were about 3.8 billion people out of work.
That is nearly half of the population.
But they’re not all sitting at home.
Millions of Americans are working.
The Bureau estimates that about half of Americans working full time are part time, and that another 3.7 billion people are working part time.
In other words, there are about 11 million Americans working part-time, about half the number working full-time.
About 6.7 percent of Americans in work are unemployed.
What about the growth in part- time workers?
In the past two years, part–time workers have been the fastest-growing demographic group.
That growth has come largely because part-timers are having to work longer hours.
For the past year, part time workers have increased their hours at a faster rate than full-timters, which has caused them to work more than full time.
What we are seeing now is that part- timers are having their paychecks start to come due.
Paychecks for part- and full- time jobs are on the rise again.
What is the outlook for the labor force?
The unemployment figures for May and June are the best signs yet that the economy is improving.
The labor force is expected to add about 1 million jobs in May but then slow to a new low in June, which will be followed by a strong bounce in July and then a steady increase in August.
The pace of growth will likely be very close to what we saw in April.
The Labor Department says that we’re in the second quarter of the recovery and expect that to continue for the rest of the year.
We should see an increase in the unemployment figure in August and a rise in unemployment in September, as the recovery slows.
And we should see a drop in unemployment, which would give us a better picture of how the economy will be performing in the coming
