It's still fewer than the gains from May and June and joining us on Skype to talk about it all. Mark Hamrick, senior economic analyst for bankrate dot com, Good to have you back, sir? Thank you so much. Hello, Sean. How would you describe where we are, after seeing today's figures from the Labor Department? Well, we still recovered fewer than half of the jobs that we lost earlier. So there is still a to do list that includes restoring 12.5 1,000,000 jobs here, and we look at the number of unemployed officially as defined by the Labor Department. That number did go down obviously, to 16 million with the addition of 1.8 million jobs here last month. So obviously that is mostly jobs being restored. It's not as if there's some sort of New hiring spree and the economy's leaping great about by great bounds. The majority of those jobs were again in the leisure and hospitality space, 500,000 food and drinking establishments. Retail recaptured a little more than 1/4 1,000,000 jobs, health care Coming back as well because with the elective procedures and returns to Dennis office all kind of resuming, they've been able to bring their people back aboard. Manufacturing added some jobs, a construction just barely government added 300,000 jobs again. These air jobs they're being brought back. And we obviously have a lot more work to do with unemployment rate. The still exceeds the peak from the financial crisis in great recession, and we've had that resurgence of virus cases in many states over the last month. Are we in danger of seeing more people losing their jobs? What's the outlook? Well, I think not because of that purse A because those cases now seemed to have been met with responses again to restrict activity. And so Mel may well be that we're on the other side of that, at least for now, and we've seen some resurgence in hiring since this survey was taken. Remember, Every monthly survey occurs around the 12th of the month. In these days, Hashtag 2020 That feels like a year and 1/2 already, so But to your point, Sean, it really does matter how we do battle with this virus right now we have the resurgence in case is beginning back in mid June.

The president spoke from the White House this morning shortly after the Labor Department released a better than expected jobs report for the month of June. NPR's Scott Horsefly has details. US employers added a record 4.8 million jobs last month, continuing the slow recovery from the pandemic recession this spring. The unemployment rate dipped to 11.1%. Investors welcome news of improving job market but the rebound remained shaky. About 40% of the job gains were in leisure and hospitality, a sector that could be hurt once again by a new spike in Corona virus infections. A job's report reflects conditions in mid June, and since that time, several states have paused or backtracked in efforts to reopen their economies.

"The Labor Department releases the jobs report for the month of may today. What can we expect? Here's Mark Hamrick. Senior economic analyst at bankrate dot com, Mark your read on this. Well, it's a little bit of a white knuckle time now, Gordon because we've been getting some mixed signals on the economy lately in the United States. And of course, we know there is a boatload of uncertainty sailing right along these days with everything's going on the trade fraud, including now Mexico, and you might say, well as we speak, Mexican tariffs have been imposed, but this is almost paralyzing for many business leaders who you know have to weigh such efforts as business strategy, whether they invest in equipment or other investments. And of course, investing in people meaning adding jobs, and so we'll be looking to the Labor Department report for signals that this is bleeding into the real economy in the job market, because I would say that for at least a couple of years now, if not longer the job market, really has been kind of that neon light with respect to sort of advertising, the strength of the US economy, whereas some of the metrics below the surface aren't quite as robust or as favorable. And so in the previous month unemployment stood at three point six percent. It's generally thought that will keep right around that market. I think really the key is how many jobs did we add? And if we get a big shortfall there, then you start sort of questioning whether this is part of a bigger slowdown in right now. I think I, I think that we might just say that we should probably look for something lower than absolutely slower than what we saw in the previous month because that was strong. But, you know, if we got something along the range of. Hundred twenty five hundred fifty thousand I think that would tell us the economy is not growing as robustly, but still growing. All right. How about the fed factoring in here? There are some whispers that a rate cut could come sooner rather than later. So for the markets, right investors, generally like that, because it represents cheap borrowing. But, but that also could be an indication that the fed is seeing signs of a slowdown. So what, what, what could happen there, right? Well, we don't want to cheer for weakness in the economy as the foundation for getting a rate cut delivered because, you know that, that sort of is saying, oh, I hope I get sick..
