The most recent employment statistics from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics offers little good or bad news. The unemployment rate in July remained unchanged at 9.5 percent, and the private sector gained 71,000 jobs.

Again, manufacturing and healthcare are leading the way. Manufacturing employment increased by 36,000 in July, and the motor vehicles and parts sector had fewer seasonal layoffs than they normally have in July. Manufacturing has added 183,000 jobs since December.

Healthcare employment went up by 27,000 jobs in July and has gained 231,000 jobs over the past 12 months.

More details about the current employment statistics are available on the Bureau’s “Employment Situation Summary.”
