US Private Sector Adds Fewer Jobs than Expected
Private businesses in the US hired just 167 thousand workers in July 2020, compared with a revised 4.3 million increase in June and way below market expectations a 1.5 million rise. The labor market continued to recover from April's record slump in employment, but a resurgence in COVID-19 infections forced several states to scale back or pause the reopening of their economies, sending some workers back to unemployment. The service-providing sector added 166 thousand jobs led by professional & business, education & health, trade, transportation & utilities, and leisure & hospitality. Still, employment declined in financial activities and information. The goods-producing sector added only 1 thousand jobs, as a rise in manufacturing employment was partially offset by declines in construction and natural resources & mining. Private payrolls in large companies were up 129 thousand and those in small companies advanced 63 thousand. However, midsized firms had to cut 25 thousand jobs.
