  • U.S. adds a solid 213,000 jobs; unemployment up to 4 percent

The local jobless rate increased to 5.5 per cent in June. Those projections turned out to be correct.

The U.S. economy surpassed expectations in June, adding more jobs than expected even as the unemployment rate rose slightly to 4 percent.

The report showed that Canada's trade surplus with the US narrowed to $3.3 billion in May, from $3.7 billion April, as more imports headed north across the border and south-bound exports decreased.

With a record 6.7 million unfilled jobs in April, economists are optimistic that wage growth will accelerate later this year. That said, this year's tally is still short of the totals from the first six months of 2014 and 2015. The image makes a distinction: red columns point to monthly changes under the Bush and Trump administrations, while blue columns point to monthly job changes under the Obama administration. Manufacturing and professional and business services saw gains, with 36,000 and 50,000 jobs added, respectively.

Steady hiring and low unemployment shows the labor market continues to be an area of strength for the economy since the recession ended nine years ago. Housing starts have climbed 11 percent so far this year.

Though economic growth appears to be solid, the gains have been spread unevenly. Most economists say they still think the low unemployment rate will eventually force more employers to offer higher pay in order to fill jobs.

The U.S. economy faces potential drags going forward, including escalating trade disputes with major trading partners such as the European Union, China, Canada and Mexico. Trump has 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. Automakers added 12,000 jobs in June.
