JUST IN: Jobs numbers exceed expectations for June


Score another big win for the president.  The Labor Department announced on Friday that the U.S. jobs market added 222,000 jobs in June.

These results are well above expectations, which is good news for the Trump administration since a primary focus of the Trump agenda is sparking the economy and creating new jobs.

June’s job increase was significantly higher than the 152,000 jobs added in May, and above economists’ expectations for the month.

Employment in June increased by 37,000 jobs in the healthcare sector, 23,000 in the social assistance sector, 17,000 in the financial sector and 8,000 in the mining sector.
