WASHINGTON — U.S. companies added 172,000 jobs last month, according to a private survey, a sign that hiring may have picked up after a slowdown in April and May.
Payroll processor ADP says that service firms, such as retailers and transportation companies, added jobs at a solid pace in June. Manufacturers shed 21,000 jobs, while construction companies cut 5,000.
