At the same time however the labor department said about 400,000 More people found jobs in july pushing total employment to a record 87.9 million. But the pickup in hiring since the recession has apparently lured into the Job Market thousands of workers particularly adult women who had t bothered to look for a Job when times were tight. The number of people without jobs in july Rose 280.000 to 7.4 million the most since 7.8 million could t find work in december. The 7.8 per cent unemployment was the highest since an identical level in january. The 7.5 per cent unemployment rate in june was an increase Over the 7.3 per cent level in May. The june july increases represent a threat to the administrations projections that unemployment will slip below 7 per cent by december. There were fewer people unemployed in january than there Are now but the unemployment rates were the same because the labor Force is constantly growing. The work Force has grown by 2.3 million or 2.5 per cent in the past year part of that is accounted for by Normal population growth but the rate is far above the eight tenths of a per cent growth in the total population last year. The bulk of the growth in the labor Force a i 4 million a has been among adult women even though they represent less than a third of the total work Force. The percentage of working age women at work or seeking a Job has risen to 47.4 per cent from 46.1 per cent a year ago. The number of women in the work Force has traditionally been considered a signal of the pressure families feel for beefing up their incomes. And economists still consider that to be a Factor but in recent years demographers have found a surge in a omens work Force participation rates unrelated to underlying economic conditions. The number of americans holding jobs advanced to a june record but the number of unemployed swelled to the 7.14-million level. And that was the largest number of people out of work since january when 7.29 million were unemployed. The growth rate in the Economy was Cut in half in the second Quarter of this year and goes a Long Way toward explaining Why unemployment did no to improve much Over the first six months of the year. But John w. Kendrick chief economist for the Commerce department says the Job picture is being complicated by above average growth in both productivity and labor Force. Productivity or the volume of goods or services produced per hour worked traditionally rises during an economic recovery. Employers use their most efficient facilities when they re running at less than full capacity As they Are now. And they wait until they Are getting the most out of those already at work.
