USUS May Non-Farm Payrolls

While the US added 559k jobs in May according to the non-farm payrolls report, this marked another downside surprise for the series where the median estimate was up at 650k.  There was a modest upward revision to the April numbers (278k vs. 266k initially reported) but that doesn’t move the needle.  Private payrolls growth came in at 492k while manufacturing payrolls added 23k job and government 67k.  The unemployment rate dropped to 5.8% from 6.1% but this was aided by a decline in participation (61.6% from 61.7%).
