Scoreboard: Job satisfaction

Better-than-expected employment data sent Wall Street to fresh record highs, while the ECB kept rates at record lows.

In US economic data, non-farm payrolls lifted by 288,000 in June. The unemployment rate fell from 6.3 per cent to 6.1 per cent -- the lowest level since September 2008. Data for April and May was revised to show a total of 29,000 more jobs than previously reported. The service sector drove the job gains while manufacturing and construction jobs also recorded a healthy lift. Over the first half of 2014 jobs growth has now averaged 231,000 jobs per month, the best start to a calendar year since 2006.
