Dow Dives 324 on Friday’s jobs report

At first glance, Friday’s jobs report was good news. After losing hundreds of thousands of jobs a year earlier, the U.S. created 431,000 jobs in May its best month of job growth since March 2000. The unemployment rate even fell from 9.9% to 9.7%. However, the markets were spooked by the report because 411,000 of the jobs created were Census jobs that will be going away, meaning the U.S. created a measly 41,000 private-sector jobs. Also, economists had called for much more robust overall growth of 513,000 jobs.

Even the drop in the unemployment rate wasn’t a good sign because people dropped out of the job market due to discouragement, a particularly negative sign at this point of a recovery. All in all, the jobs report failed to live up to the hype and provided the bears with more ammo to hammer away at the beaten-down stock market. It also bolstered forecasts for a so-called jobless recovery. READ MORE AT SOURCE
