Fewer Jobs in the United States

I know tomorrow is the start of a long weekend for many of us, but the government released numbers today that indicate that employers are cutting jobs across the United States. The Employment Situation Summary reports that the non-farm employment is down 62,000 in June. If you want to examine these numbers in more detail over a longer period, check out the Bureau of Labor Statistics's Current Employment Statistics web site.

Want some media reaction? Check out the Washington Post's "Employers Cut Jobs for 6th Straight Month" or the Wall Street Journal's "Economists React: 'Consistent Picture of Weakness' on Jobs."

Still need more business and economic information? Check out the library's guides.
