WHO:     Carl Camden, president and chief executive officer,

DETAILS: The following commentary is offered in advance of the May
         unemployment rate announcement due Friday from the U.S.
         Department of Labor:
         "Despite high energy prices and increasing interest rates,
          consumer confidence is still high and economic expansion remains
          on track.  The employment market is solid and there are no signs
          that the growth is weakening.
         "Wage inflation also continues, but differences in employee skills
          sets are evident as increases are mainly confined to highly
          credentialed and experienced professionals.  As the economy
          continues to expand, the professional services industries will
          provide much of the job growth.
         "The pace of hiring should climb steadily heading into the
          summer months."
WHEN:    Carl Camden is available Friday, June 2, for media interviews
