Nums: Gallup says unemployment rate to go up …

The BLS numbers get reported at 8:30 this morning.

I always reference Gallup as an indicator.

For May, Gallup’s seasonally adjusted U.S. unemployment rate was 8.2%up .4% from 7.8% in April.

My bet: weak jobs growth ( probably 125,000) … but BLS will find a way to keep the official unemployment rate constant at 7.5%
