Undated (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – For the third straight month, the jobs report is weaker than anticipated.
U.S. employers added only 80,000 jobs in June.
The Labor Department says the unemployment rate remains unchanged at 8.2 percent.
So far, job creation is trailing last year's pace through the first half of 2012.
Analysts say the weak job market has consumers feeling less confident, this is evident by the pull-back in spending, even as gas prices went down.
