The U.S. unemployment rate is up, but just barely. The May jobs numbers were released earlier today (Friday).
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports 175-thousand jobs were added in May. That's more than analysts expected and more than what was added last month.
Officials say 11-point-8 million people are unemployed, that's a small increase from April.
