(Worthy News) - U.S. employers are thought to have hired at a solid pace in May and helped extend the economy's nearly nine-year expansion — the second-longest on record — despite uncertainty caused by trade disputes.

Economists have forecast that employers added 190,000 jobs last month and that the unemployment rate remained at a 17-year low of 3.9 percent, according to data provider FactSet.

The Labor Department's May jobs report will be released at 8:30 a.m. Eastern time. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]
