U.S. Added 287,000 Jobs in June

U.S. employers added 287,000 jobs in June, the Labor Department said Friday, but the unemployment rate ticked up to 4.9 percent from 4.7 percent. The new report comes after May’s grim numbers—just 38,000 jobs added—and the U.K.’s recent vote to exit the European Union. The increase in the unemployment rate indicates that more people joined the labor force during June.
