    WASHINGTON >> American businesses added 177,000 workers in June, a sign of health and resilience for the U.S. labor market and economy, according to a private survey.

    Payroll processor ADP said Thursday that hiring was led by employers with more than 50 workers, accounting for 84 percent of the job growth. The education and health sector led the gains by adding 46,000 workers. Leisure and hospitality added 33,000 jobs, as did professional and business services.

    The job growth of the past several years reflects an economic expansion that is now entering its tenth year. But the hiring gains are now creating a challenge for employers to find capable workers, said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, which helps put together the report.
    This also appears in that article;
    The ADP figures come one day before the government releases its monthly employment report. Economists have forecast that Friday’s official report will show solid job growth of 195,000. The unemployment rate is expected to hold at 3.8 percent.
    They should have waited till the next day. Per the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Department of Labor unemployment went up to 4.0 percent for the month of June.

    So June 2018 shows the largest rise in unemployment of Trump's presidency.

    Per https://tradingeconomics.com/united-...mployment-rate that rise translates into 499,000 more people being unemployed to 6.6 million in total.

    Per https://www.usnews.com/news/economy/...ne-jobs-report that is about 30,000 jobs lost and 387,000 new workers entering the work force. Total job creation was 213,000 jobs. 22,000 of the lost jobs were in retail.

    I can't find it either. I'd imagine that the ones that are employed, with a H-2B visa, are counted somewhere by someone.

    A H-2B visa (temporary worker) is not a green card (permanent resident).

    A student visa, we have a lot at Kent State, does not permit the student to work by itself. They can get a employment attachment to the student visa. But, they can only work for the university. They can work in the dining halls (Dining Services). They can not work at the Subway or Starbucks on campus. They are also limited to 20 hours per week. US citizens that are students can work up to 28 hours per week.

    The university counts all of these as student workers. I have no idea if the Department of Labor does or not.
