Jobs in May

Employers added 431,000 jobs for the month of May.

The bad news: 411,000 of those jobs are temporary census takers.

Private sector employers also added 41,000 jobs in the period, below the 218,000 private sector job gains in April.Government payrolls other than Census declined by 21,000 jobs in May, due largely to job cuts by state and local governments which gets us to our 431,000.

While the country is still in recovery, the census jobs are temporary. Let’s hope the private sector can absorb those jobs when the census is over.
