Job creation was weak in July, according to a survey from the National Federation for Independent Business. Hiring intentions rose three points to a net 12% on a seasonally adjusted basis. Twenty-five percent of respondents reported job openings in July, up one point from June, but four points below the highest reading for the year.
“July’s anemic jobs reading offers little to no support for a lower unemployment rate,” says Bill Dunkelberg, NFIB’s chief economist.
