WASHINGTON — The U.S. employment situation was worse than expected in June after showing signs of improvement in May, and the retail and wholesale apparel and textile sectors contributed to the job losses.
Specialty clothing stores cut 2,300 jobs last month to employ 1.43 million, while department stores eliminated 1,200 positions to employ 1.53 million, according to the Labor Department. Since the recession officially began in December 2007, apparel retailers have lost a net total of 159,400 jobs.

"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)
