The nation's economy added 195-thousand jobs last month. The latest numbers out this morning from the Labor Department show the unemployment rate is still stuck at seven-point-six-percent. The jobless rate hasn't changed much since February. Jobs grew in leisure and hospitality, profession and business services, retail trade, health care, and financial activities. The gain of 195-thousand jobs is an improvement over May, when the economy added 176-thousand jobs. It's also better than most analysts had been expecting.
