July 6, 2023

ROSELAND, N.J., July 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Private sector employment increased by 497,000 jobs in June and annual pay was up 6.4 percent year-over-year, according to the June ADP® National Employment ReportTM produced by the ADP Research Institute® in collaboration with the Stanford Digital Economy Lab ("Stanford Lab").

The jobs report and pay insights use ADP's fine-grained anonymized and aggregated payroll data of over 25 million U.S. employees to provide a representative picture of the labor market. The report details the current month's total private employment change, and weekly job data from the previous month. ADP's pay measure uniquely captures the earnings of a cohort of almost 10 million employees over a 12-month period.

"Consumer-facing service industries had a strong June, aligning to push job creation higher than expected," said Nela Richardson, chief economist, ADP. "But wage growth continues to ebb in these same industries, and hiring likely is cresting after a late-cycle surge."
