Em­ploy­ment in man­u­fac­tur­ing changed lit­tle in June. Af­ter gains of 164 000 be­tween Novem­ber 2010 and April this year, em­ploy­ment in this in­dus­try has been flat for the past two months. In June, job gains in fab­ri­cated metal prod­ucts (8 000) were par­tially off­set by a loss in wood prod­ucts (5 000). Fi­nance lost 15 000 jobs, in­di­cat­ing the sec­tor isn’t out of the woods yet. Re­tail gained 5 000 jobs.
