  • Economy adds 213K jobs in June unemployment ticks up to 4 percent

The Labor Department reported Friday that the nation's unemployment rate rose by 0.2 of a percentage point in June, to 4 percent.

The manufacturing sector, a target of Trump's "Make America Great Again" agenda, added 36,000 jobs in June, just the latest of a series of good news stories about the industry.

Rather than being an omen of bad things to come, the rise suggests a positive outlook for the United States economy as it coincides with more than 600,000 people entering the labor force.

Canada has been producing some of the strongest pay gains in years and that trend continued in June with average hourly wages up 3.6 per cent from a year earlier.

"At first glance, the bump in the unemployment rate ... gives the headline numbers a mixed hue, but the reality is that it is good to see more people both working and looking for work", he said.

A closer look at the June numbers shows Canada added 9,100 full-time jobs in June and 22,700 part-time positions.

Still, if the additional jobs and that sort of wage growth don't make you smile, the rising unemployment rate should.

The broader US economy appears sturdy. Economists are forecasting that economic growth accelerated to an annual pace of roughly 4 per cent during the April-June quarter, about double the previous quarter's pace.

"There were some people who weren't participating in the labor force who are now being encouraged to return, so I'm not concerned about the uptick in unemployment", she said. The agency says more people were seeking job opportunities and that forced the rate up to 6%. Trump oversaw a steadily-declining unemployment rate which eventually reached its lowest level since 2000.

"He pointed to minutes from the June Federal Open Market Committee, which indicate that some business leaders' "'plans for capital spending had been scaled back or postponed, '" which will likely also affect hiring.

Trump has also spoken about slapping tariffs on imported cars, trucks and auto parts, which General Motors has warned could hurt the US auto industry and drive up vehicle prices.
