Following the report that was released on Thursday, the job market has perked up over the last month. ADP, the company processing payrolls, reported that 176,000 jobs had been added by the private businesses in June. It is a sufficient increase comparing to 133,000 jobs which had been added in May. Besides, the total number occurred to be higher than the predicted one.

Private Businesses Drive Job Growth

Small businesses went on driving job growth. According to the released data, the companies employing less than 50 employees hired nearly 93,000 people, while 11,000 new employees were hired by the large companies with 500 or more workers. As for the businesses of medium size, they added 72,000 to their payrolls.

Unemployment Rate Remains High

Usually, the report released by the ADP sets the tone for the jobs report of the government that is due out on Friday. After factoring in the government layoffs, the economists predict that the report will show 80,000 jobs added. In addition, it is expected that the unemployment rate will remain at 8.2 percent in June. It is still rather high, thus, there is no surprise that people go on turning to cash advance providers. To keep the rate of unemployment rate steady, the economy needs nearly 125,000 new job places every month.
