Jobless Claims Continue To Rise

Employers cut payrolls by 62,000 in June, the sixth straight month of nationwide job losses, underscoring the economy's fragile state. The unemployment rate held steady at 5.5 percent - the same as May. Previously, the last time the unemployment rate hit as high 5.5 percent was in October 2004.

Heavy job losses in construction, manufacturing, business services and retailing eclipsed job gains in education and health services, leisure and hospitality, and government.
