Release: Local insights into June jobs report

DAYTON, OH – This morning the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics issued employment data for the month of June. BarryStaff president Doug Barry is available for interviews and to comment on the local job market in the Miami Valley.  

The U.S. economy added a significant amount of new jobs in June — more than 224,000. The national unemployment rate rose to 3.7 percent. That’s a slight increase from 3.6 percent in May. The U.S. government reported job gains in professional and business services, construction, health care and social assistance.  

“Nationally, the conversation will be about a rebound after job gains slowed in May,” said BARRYSTAFF president Doug Barry. “This is good for job seekers, but difficult for employers. We simply can’t find people to fill jobs that are being added at the companies we work with.  

“It says something that jobs are being added but the employment rate still went up,” he said.

BarryStaff is an award-winning employment agency that hires workers for more than 100 employers throughout the Miami Valley. The majority of them are in manufacturing.
