Goldman May Payrolls Preview

A few brief excerpts from a note by Goldman Sachs economist Spencer Hill:

We estimate nonfarm payrolls rose 750k in May (mom sa) … Following the surprisingly weak April report, we believe the further easing of business restrictions more than offset a moderate drag from labor supply factors and seasonality. … We estimate a three-tenths drop in the unemployment rate to 5.8% (consensus 5.9%), reflecting a strong household employment gain but a further rise in the participation rate.
emphasis added

CR Note: The consensus is for 650 thousand jobs added, and for the unemployment rate to decrease to 5.9%.
