Paul Davidson USA TODAY Published 4:29 p.m. UTC Jul 6, 2018 Employment growth was strong for a second consecutive month in June as the economy added 213,000 jobs despite worker shortages and mounting U.S. trade tensions. The unemployment rate, which is calculated from a separate survey, rose from an 18-year low of 3.8% to 4% as 600,000 Americans, including many discouraged workers on the sidelines, streamed into a favorable job market, the Labor Department said Friday. Economists expected 195,000 payroll gains, according to a Bloomberg survey. Many experts have expected job gains to slow because the low employment rate is making it harder for firms to find workers. Also, President Donald Trump has slapped tariffs on imports that have provoked tit-for-tat countermeasures by other countries in an escalating trade war that’s starting to unnerve U.S. corporations. But before Friday’s report, monthly additions have averaged about 200,000 this year. And Goldman Sachs says the tight labor market tends to boost hiring in June as companies aggressively target students and graduates.
