美国私营部门工作增加,失业率维持在9.5 US Private Sector Adds Jobs, Unemployment Stays at 9.5 Percent

06 August, 2010

美国私营企业雇主七月份增加了7万1千个工作机会,表明美国劳工市场和经济在总体上恢复缓慢。

美国劳工部星期五公布的一份报告显示,失业率仍然维持在百分之九点五的水平不变。

白宫经济顾问罗默在一份声明中说,经济恢复的过程中可能会遇到更多的挑战。

经济学家密切关注私营部门的就业数据,因为在美国,私人公司提供了大部分的工作机会。就业率同时也是消费者支出的一大指标,原因是失业以及担心工作稳定度的民众倾向于减少花费。

整体来说,七月份美国工作机会减少,主要是因为美国商务部人口普查局裁掉了14万4千名临时雇员。这些人被人口普查局临时雇用几个月的时间,来进行十年一次的人口普查。

U.S. private employers added 71,000 jobs in July, indicating the U.S. labor market and the economy at large are slow to recover from recession.

A report Friday from the Labor Department shows the unemployment rate stayed unchanged at 9.5 percent.

In a statement, White House Economic Adviser Christina Romer said there will likely be more "bumps in the road" (challenges) as the economy recovers.

Economists closely watch the private payrolls figure, because private companies do the bulk of hiring in the United States. Employment is also a big indicator of consumer spending, as those who are unemployed or worried about job stability tend to spend less.

The country lost jobs overall in July, due in large part to cuts at the U.S. Census Bureau. The government agency cut about 144,000 temporary employees who were hired for only a couple of months to conduct the once-a-decade population count.
