State of the Job Recovery

The leisure and hospitality sector once again led the job gains, adding 380,000 payrolls, with restaurants and drinking places accounting for the lion’s share of that total (+253,000). Notable gains also occured in local government education (+221,000), education and health care (+87,000) and professional and business services (+60,000), as those four sectors combined accounted for 80 percent of new jobs created in July. 

Another factor playing into this could be that employers are having problems fill the jobs openings they do have.
