The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that U.S. employers added 287,000 new jobs in June, a sharp rebound fits with other evidence, including extremely low layoffs and record job openings. 

The job gains in June were the strongest of the year. Most industries added jobs. Health-care providers, financial firms, restaurants, retailers, and professional services led the way. 

The unemployment rate, which is drawn from a different survey, rose to 4.9% in June from 4.7% in May, as more people entered the labor force in search of work. The U.S. has created 13 million jobs since 2011 to reduce the unemployment rate to precession levels last seen in 2007.
