- Hiring surged last month in a sign of US economic vitality
By Christopher S. Rugaber - Friday Jul 7, 2017
WASHINGTON — Hiring surged in June in a surprising show of U.S. economic vitality eight years into the recovery from the Great Recession.Last month, economists worried that hiring would slow as employers struggled to fill jobs from a dwindling supply of unemployed workers.“This balanced pace should enable the current economic expansion to be maintained much beyond the historical norm,” Russell Price, senior economist for Ameriprise Financial, said.[...] the job market and economy look broadly the same as they did last year, though President Trump has boasted that his policies are accelerating hiring and growth.The unemployment rate among blacks fell in June to its lowest level in 17 years, at 7.1 percent.Normally, as the number of unemployed dwindles, employers raise pay to attract job seekers.The influx of job seekers last month — who had previously been on the sidelines, not counted as unemployed — might have offset some upward wage pressures.Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, said many workers are too cautious to push for raises, partly because of the lingering effects of the recession, when nearly 9 million people lost their jobs.John McAuliffe, chief executive of Sylvan Learning, a company that offers tutoring to students from kindergarten through high school, is hiring more teachers and expanding.The economy appears resilient enough for the Federal Reserve to keep raising its benchmark interest rate.Mark Dix, a general contractor in Knoxville, Tenn., said he has seen a jump in demand for the renovation, painting and home construction services he provides.Health care posted the biggest job gain — 59,100 — despite uncertainty around health care legislation in Congress.
