Quick-look data from the JUST RELEASED jobs report for May. Not good---only 69,000 net job change. See where the strenghts and weakness were HERE

For the current month measured (May) look at the data to the far right.  Read the numbers in "thousands".  The first number shows 69,000 job gain. The losses are denoted with the negative sign in front of the number.  Be careful reading the chart. Notice the indentations on some of the sub categories.  This is to drill down a bit to show job sectors within jobs sectors and how they are performing.  GO HERE  for the complete report and summary.
