The nation’s unemployment edges up slightly to 3.7% in June

The U.S. economy added 224,000 jobs in June, after May’s downwardly revised 75,000 advance, according to the latest Employment Situation Summary report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Chief Economist Danielle Hale said after May’s weaker jobs data, the June report takes on new importance as a sign of whether May data was a one-month blip or the start of a new weaker trend.
