Economic Report: U.S. adds 213,000 jobs in June as unemployment makes surprise rise

Bloomberg News/Landov
Businesses can’t find enough talent to fill a record number of job openings, but they are still hiring aggressively.

The numbers: The U.S. created 213,000 new jobs in June, another hearty gain that shows companies are finding ways to fill open jobs despite a dwindling pool of skilled workers.

The gain in hiring topped the 200,000 forecast of economists polled by MarketWatch.

In a surprise, the unemployment rate rose to 4% last month after dropping to an 18-year low of 3.8% in May, the Labor Department said Friday.

The jobless rate rose largely because some 600,000 people entered the labor force.
