Earlier today, Paddy posted Quickie- Gallup: U.S. Job Creation Best in Five Years. Here's an excerpt:

The net job creation score is based on 37% of workers telling Gallup that their employer is hiring new people and expanding the size of its workforce, and 15% saying their company is letting people go and reducing the size of its workforce. The percentage “hiring” is the highest since August 2008 and the percentage “letting people go” is the lowest since March 2008.

Workers across many regions and in various groups are giving Gallup some of the best job creation reports in five years

Here's a short update, via an email alert from Fox Biz:

The ADP National Employment Report shows the U.S. private sector added 135,000 jobs in May, missing expectations of 165,000 being created.

Yes, they missed expectations. But also yes, jobs were added in May. Key word: Added.
