A few brief excerpts from a note by Goldman Sachs economist Spencer Hill:
We estimate nonfarm payrolls rose 750k in June (mom sa) … Coupled with very strong labor demand and continued progress on vaccinations and reopening, we believe job growth probably picked up further in the month. … We estimate a two-tenths drop in the unemployment rate to 5.6%, reflecting a strong household employment gain but a further rise in the participation rate.
CR Note: The consensus is for 675 thousand jobs added, and for the unemployment rate to decrease to 5.6%.
