NEW YORK, July 8, 2016 /-- Following a disappointing (and downwardly revised) 11,000 jobs gained in May, the economy generated a whopping 287,000 jobs in June.

The increase in the unemployment rate to 4.9 percent in June was not entirely surprising after the 0.3 percentage point drop in May. If employment continues to grow by about 150,000 a month, which is the rate in the past two months, the unemployment rate will continue to decline. The year-over-year wage growth continues to climb, reflecting an economy moving towards normal labor market tightness.
