Labor market adds 37,000 retail jobs, monthly report shows

BY Alaric DeArment

WASHINGTON — Of the 195,000 jobs created last month, 37,000 were in retail, according to the latest numbers form the Department of Labor.

The June employment numbers indicated a net gain of 28,000 jobs, according to the National Retail Federation, a Washington-based trade group. The unemployment rate remained at 7.6%.

"While the nation’s employment numbers are a positive sign that the economy is recovering, albeit slowly, the high unemployment rate — with 12 million jobless Americans — remains an eyesore," NRF president and CEO Matthew Shay said. "The private sector economy is humming along as employers and businesses hire more workers, but much uncertainty remains, especially in regard to healthcare reform implementation and fiscal and tax policy."
