Highlights of ADP Report (May)
Private payrolls rose by 253k (est. 180k) after revised 174k gain in April

Goods-producing industries, which include manufacturers and builders, increased headcounts by 48k after 6k

Service providers boosted payrolls by 205k, the most since November, after 167k

Key Takeaway
Businesses continue to hire workers in addition to retaining existing employees, indicating sustained job-market progress that helps explain why Federal Reserve policy makers are projected to raise interest rates when they meet later this month. The ADP report may help bolster economists’ forecasts for the private payrolls tally in the May jobs report due from the Labor Department on Friday.

Economist Views
“Job growth is rip-roaring,” Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics Inc. in West Chester, Pennsylvania, said in a statement. Moody’s produces the figures with ADP. “The current pace of job growth is nearly three times the rate necessary to absorb growth in the labor force. Increasingly, businesses’ number one challenge will be a shortage of labor.” Gold trades below 5-week high after private gauge of Chinese manufacturing showed contraction and a Fed official said the central bank could raise interest rates 4 times this year.
