Private employers added 200,000 jobs to the economy in July. Overall, the employment picture has improved since the same time last year.

Yesterday, private staffing and business services firm ADP released the latest installment of their National Employment Report indicating that the situation for private employment in the U.S. improved in July as private employers added 200,000 jobs in the month, bringing the total employment level 1.79% above the level seen in July 2012. 

Look for Friday’s BLS Employment Situation Report to likely show somewhat similar trends.
