Washington • The U.S. job market's gains in June were as broad as they were deep.
Employers across an array of industries accounted for the 288,000 jobs the economy added, the government reported Friday. The unemployment rate slipped to 6.1 percent from 6.3 percent in May.
The number of retail workers jumped 40,200. The health care and social assistance sector gained 33,700. Restaurants and bars added 32,800 employees.
There are signs of greater job security. Just 3.5 percent of the jobs added last month went to temps — much less than the monthly average during the five-year recovery of about 10 percent. Factories ramped up their payrolls by 16,000.
