Job growth was the best since 312 in January and surpassed the November 000 figure of 2018.

“This is explosive and the US economy remains focused on jobs,” said Tony Bedikian, head of global markets at Citizens Bank. - The unemployment rate is at a 50-year low, and wages are rising. Business owners may become more cautious due to trade and political uncertainties, and growth may be slow, but consumers continue to spend. "

But the news does not please everyone. As the holiday shopping season progressed, retailers added a total of 2 000 net jobs, and the mining industry lost 7000 jobs, resulting in 19 000 jobs lost in May.
