The U.S. economy added 138,000 jobs last month, less than the 174,000 jobs gained in April and lower than expected.
The government's report suggested that eight years into the recovery from the Great Recession, job growth may be slowing after a long stretch of robust gains. This also suggests that the jobs market is fairly tight right now and that employers are not feeling pressure to increase either wages or the workweek significantly in order to prevent workers from leaving for greener pastures.

Over the year, average hourly earnings have risen by 2.5 percent, the same growth rate as in April.

But the report also showed some sectors were shedding positions, with the struggling retail sector employing 6,100 fewer workers and automakers losing 1,500, amid declining new vehicle sales.
