WHAT: Advance comment on the unemployment rate announcement provided by global staffing company Kelly Services.

WHO: Carl Camden, president and chief executive officer, Kelly Services.

DETAILS: The following commentary is offered in advance of the December unemployment rate announcement due Friday from the U.S. Department of Labor:
"We expect to see a modest jobs report as the year comes to a close. The economy continues to progress, but not at a pace we've experienced in recent years.
"The unemployment rate remains low, and the recent increase of people re-entering the workforce is a positive indication that economic expansion remains on track. This trend should continue into early next year.
"The addition of jobs in service industries including retail, healthcare, education, and finance has offset the weakness occurring in the residential housing and automotive sectors.
"Overall, we saw moderate growth in the fourth quarter and we believe the economy and jobs market will steadily improve in 2007.

" WHEN: Carl Camden is available Friday, Jan. 5, for media interviews through the contact information listed above.
