U.S. employers added another 217,000 jobs in May. That’s the fourth straight month of job gains above 200,000. The job gains in May could mean the economy now has recovered all the jobs lost during the recession, but as VOA's Mil Arcega reports, the unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.3 percent because more Americans went looking for work.
