Arab Today, arab today Weakest job data in 9 months mars US recovery

Washington - Arabstoday

US employment growth ground to a halt in June, with employers hiring the fewest number of workers in nine months, dampening hopes the economy was on the cusp of regaining momentum after stumbling in recent months. Non-farm payrolls rose only 18,000, the weakest reading since September, the Labour Department said yesterday, well below economists\' expectations for a 90,000 rise. Many economists had raised their forecasts on Thursday after a stronger-than-expected reading on US private hiring from payrolls processor ADP, and they expected gains of anywhere between 125,000 and 175,000. The unemployment rate climbed to 9.2 per cent, the highest since December, from 9.1 per cent in May. The government revised April and May payrolls to show 44,000 fewer jobs created than previously reported. The report shattered expectations that the economy was starting to accelerate after a soft patch in the first half of the year. Article continues below The private sector added 57,000, accounting for all the jobs created, with government employment shrinking 39,000 because of fiscal problems at local and state governments. Economic activity in the first six months of the year was dampened by rising commodity prices and supply chain disruptions following Japan\'s devastating earthquake in March. Signs the labour market is struggling is a major blow for the Obama administration, which has struggled to get the economy to create enough jobs to absorb the 14.1 million unemployed Americans. The economy is the top concern among voters and will feature prominently in President Barack Obama\'s bid for re-election next year. So far, the economy has regained only a fraction of the more than 8 million jobs lost during the recession. At the same time, the Federal Reserve — which recently wrapped up a $600 billion (Dh2.20 trillion) bond-buying programme designed to spur lending and stimulate growth — appears unlikely to take any further steps to boost the economy. Details of the report showed widespread weakness, though factory payrolls rebounded 6,000 after contracting in May for the first time in seven months, with the recovery reflecting a step-up in motor vehicle production.
