Nonfarm Payrolls Seen at 3-Month High
The American economy likely added 700K jobs in June, which would be the strongest job growth in 3 months, led by the leisure and hospitality sector as companies try to boost production and services to meet rising demand. That would leave employment about 6.9 million jobs below its peak in February 2020. Yet, labour shortages continue to weigh on capacity production as many companies struggle to hire employees as enhanced unemployment benefits, ongoing child care responsibilities and health concerns may discourage some workers to find a job. To cope with the absence of workers, companies raise wages and benefits. Average hourly earnings likely increased 0.4% after a 0.5% gain in May, pushing the annual rate to 3.7% from 2.1%. That would renew concerns on inflationary pressures although the Federal Reserve has constantly reiterated price increases are temporary.
