The labor market rebounded strongly in June as U.S. employers added 222,000 net new jobs for the best performance since February, the Labor Department said Friday.
The figure was a significant improvement from May’s upwardly revised job growth of 152,000 net new jobs. Job creation for April and May was revised up by a total of 47,000.
The unemployment rate ticked up 0.1 percentage point last month after hitting its lowest level since 2001 in May. But the increase, to 4.4%, was for a good reason as 361,000 people joined the labor force a month after it contracted.
