DETAILS: The following commentary is offered in advance of the June unemployment rate announcement due Friday from the U.S. Department of Labor: "Following a month where weaker numbers were produced, we expect to see modest acceleration in job creation for June. Record low unemployment rates are evident across the country, including the Midwest. "Due to unyielding gas and commodity prices, inflation continues. Wage increases are moderate, and the bargaining power remains in the hands of highly credentialed and experienced professionals. Technical sectors including engineering and information technology are experiencing growth, while manufacturing continues to lag. "The first half of the year proved to be positive with the economy producing good, solid numbers. Heading into the third quarter, the employment picture should remain one of steady, moderate growth." WHEN: Carl Camden is available Friday, July 7 for media interviews through the contact information listed above.
