US adds 280,000 jobs - Vox: "The US economy added 280,000 jobs in May, with the unemployment rate rising slightly to 5.5 percent on higher labor force participation.
That's high relative to the 226,000 expected by economists in a survey by Bloomberg.
Revisions to the earlier data for April and March added an additional 32,000 jobs
All in all, the report paints a picture of an economy that continues on a steady path of recovery, albeit not a spectacular one.
Average hourly wages rose 0.3 percent, a bit ahead of expectations of 0.2 percent growth."
