US hiring remains strong in July

Job seekers check out opportunities at a job fair in Chicago, Illinois, on June 12, 2014The unemployment rate rose by 0.1 points to 6.2 percent, but it remained near its lowest level in nearly six years and well down from 7.9 percent at the start of 2013. Nevertheless, the number of unemployed rose by nearly 200,000 to 9.67 million, in part because of the constant increase in the number of working-age Americans, as well as a return to the labor force by tens of thousands of people who had dropped out and were not previously counted as unemployed. Harm Bandholz of UniCredit pointed out that the return of dropouts has added more than a half-million people to the labor force over the past six months. President Barack Obama lauded the report as another sign that the economy is “clearly getting stronger.”
