272,000 Jobs Added in May; Unemployment Rate Rises to 4%

In May, the employment situation improved across several industries, including healthcare, government, leisure and hospitality, professional and technical services, social assistance jobs, and retail trade. However, some major industries such as mining, construction, manufacturing, wholesale trade, transportation and warehousing did not experience significant changes in employment numbers for the month.

On a broader scale, unemployment rates for various worker groups remained relatively stable in May. This includes teenagers, Black Americans, Hispanics, adult men and women as well as White Americans and Asian Americans. Despite this stability in unemployment rates for different worker groups, the number of long-term unemployed workers did not show any significant change in May. These individuals have been jobless for 27 weeks or longer and accounted for 20.7% of all unemployed individuals in the country.
