PENNSYLVANIA'S NONFARM PAYROLLS INCREASE IN JUNE

 PENNSYLVANIA'S NONFARM PAYROLLS INCREASE IN JUNE
 /ADVANCE/ HARRISBURG, Pa., Aug. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Pennsylvania's


nonagricultural jobs increased for the fifth consecutive month in June to 5.05 million, state Department of Labor and Industry analysts reported today.
 The May-to-June increase of 4,200 jobs, however, was only one-fifth of the usual seasonal rise. June's total job count was down 67,300 from one year ago and 162,800 from the all-time-high level of June 1990.
 The department's job count excludes farm workers, domestic workers, unpaid family workers and the self-employed.
 Jobs in the goods-producing sector totaled 1.18 million in June. Their 10,200 rise since May was only two-thirds of the normal seasonal gain. Major increases in June were in the construction industry, by 5,500, and in manufacturing, by 4,400.
 Both durable and nondurable goods contributed to the manufacturing job climb. The 2,400 durable goods job increase since May was close to seasonal expectations, but the 2,000 gain in nondurable goods was less than half of the usual seasonal movement.
 A year-ago comparison revealed overall goods-producing jobs were down 39,800. Manufacturing (-24,000), construction (-14,700) and mining (-1,100) industries all shared in this decrease.
 The service-producing industries provided 3.87 million jobs in June, down 7,000 from May. A gain of 4,900 is the norm for this time period. Decreases in government (-12,500) and transportation (-2,100) outweighed the small gains that occurred in the other major industry lines. Since June 1991, overall service-producing jobs were down 28,800, with significant declines posted in retail trade, wholesale trade and government.
 Among Pennsylvania's 15 major labor market areas, 11 reported job gains in June. The largest increases were reported in the Pittsburgh (+4,200) and Philadelphia (+2,400) Primary Metropolitan Statistical Areas (PMSAs). Only the State College (-3,600), Sharon (-700) Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and the Beaver County PMSA (-100) posted declines from May. The Williamsport MSA remained stable at 50,500. Nine areas led by the Philadelphia PMSA (-35,900) had fewer jobs than in June 1991.
