Press release from the issuing company

June 6, 2005 -- (WhatTheyThink.com) -- The unemployment rate for May was reported at 5.1%, down from April's 5.2%. While payrolls added only 78,000 jobs, the household survey added 376,000 new jobs, which is quite good. Net new businesses went up, and is now averaging 71,300 per month.
