Highlights
Nonfarm payroll growth of 222,000 was strong in the June employment report but not average hourly earnings which inched only 0.2 percent higher, part of the mix that makes for only a moderate 1.5 in the labor market conditions index.

Recent History Of This Indicator
The labor market conditions index is running better after recent upward revisions with the May headline at a soft but still respectable 2.3. This report tracks wage growth but weakness here is being offset by solid employment growth. Forecasters see the June index coming in at 1.8.
