US Loses 131,000 Jobs in July

Recently, the US Labour Department reported the loss of 225,000 jobs during June, however this was explained by the end of the temporary contracted US census staff. However, the latest figures delivered by the US labour department for July confirm a further 131,000 Job losses in July, with only 71,000 being created.

The BBC reported that many analysts are concerned that unemployment is undermining the US economic recovery.
