WASHINGTON — The U.S. employment picture deteriorated further in May, with the economy losing 49,000 jobs in the month and the unemployment rate rising to 5.5 percent from 5 percent in April — the largest increase since February 1986 — the Labor Department reported Friday.
Department stores lost 14,900 jobs to employ 1.5 million, continuing a pattern of declining employment numbers. Specialty stores gained 1,300 jobs to employ 1.5 million, after cutting 1,000 positions in April.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
