Steady job gains could help U.S. economy rebound

Posted

WASHINGTON — Another solid month of hiring in June could signal the start of a stronger second half of the year for the U.S. economy.

Economists predict that the government will report Friday that employers added 165,000 jobs last month, roughly in line with May's increase. The unemployment rate is expected to stay at a still-high 7.6 percent.

The Labor Department will release the employment report at 8:30 a.m. today.
