June Brings More US Jobs To Men And Teenagers

By The Associated Press

The U.S. unemployment rate may have been unchanged last month from May at 7.6 percent. But for adult men, who make up a slight majority of the workforce, June was a time of improvement.

Unemployment for men 20 and older dropped to 7.0 percent. That's down from 7.2 percent in May and just above March's 6.9 percent â¿¿ the lowest since November 2008.

The rate for white adult men fell to 6.2 percent from 6.4 percent in May. Unemployment was also lower for black adult men â¿¿ going from 13.5 percent in May to a still-high 13.0 percent.

Early-summer hiring wasn't quite as kind to adult women. Their unemployment rate rose to 6.8 percent, up from a four-year low of 6.5 percent. And unemployment for black women 20 and older shot up to 12 percent, from 11.2 percent in May.

All those restaurant and retail jobs added in June appeared to help teenagers: Unemployment for that group fell to 24 percent, down from 24.5 percent in May.
