"For the third month in a row, we can report that our wage and salary employment is topping two million jobs".

A separate survey of employers found that seasonally adjusted non-farm payrolls rose by 6,100 in June, to nearly 5.94 million.

The economy created 222,000 jobs last month, the second biggest payrolls increase this year. But the largest chunk of them are in the lower paying leisure and hospitality sector. 2,077,275 people were counted as employed in June, down slightly from May's count of 2,088,502, but well above June 2016's count of 2,040,370. Since June 2016, this sector has gained 2,000 jobs or 2.1 percent.

The unemployment rate for the Colorado Springs area and other cities across the state will be released August 3. Employment in information, which includes media jobs, decreased by 1,000 and mining and logging was down 200 jobs.

"Miami-Dade has more exposure to worldwide markets, and definitely previous year but even now it's been a weak global environment", he said.

The government sector declined by 1,700 jobs from May 2017 to June 2017, and 1,800 since last June. The District of Columbia has a 6.2 percent unemployment rate.

All figures except for Broward county are adjusted to account for seasonal fluctuations in the workforce.
