Here are some nice repeating numbers: 222,000 jobs added and an unemployment rate of 4.4%. The number of jobs added was above expectations, though this may reflect that the number of jobs added was below expectations in May. The unemployment rate was up 0.1%, but both are very low numbers. Typically, such a an economic recovery would also include wage growth, but the 2.5% wage growth is less than expected. If the recovery continues, the US may reach pre-Great Recession levels in August.
