(Worthy News) - The United States added 224,000 jobs during the month of June, beating analysts' expectations by about 60,000, the Labor Department said in its monthly workforce report Friday.
Analysts predicted an increase of about 165,000 for the month after a dismal May that saw only 75,000 new jobs.
The jobs report came four days after the U.S. economy set a record for most consecutive months of economic growth -- 121 -- without a recession. The streak dates back to July 2009 when the economy began pulling out of the financial crisis. [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
