New York (CNNMoney) - All eyes are on jobs this week, as economists brace for Friday's June jobs report from the government.

Economists surveyed by CNNMoney expect the monthly report to show the economy added 95,000 jobs in June.

    Let us clear this way, yes, it is getting better. We need strict immigration, and Manufacture, and Agriculture, energy-efficiency, made-in-USA. Don't buy if not USA. Reduce driving. Don't cut trees, nor kill wild-life!!!

    Somehow the right wingnuts will post that we were better off when we were losing 800,000 jobs each month under Little Bush. Remember, all job growth under Obama has been without the help of a single republican.

    Obama's jobs record is actually positive is you consider illegal immigration. With unemployment in Mexico being about half that of the US, many illegal immigrants are returning home for work.

    obama has given the green light to illegal imigrants to stay? Is that number going to be counted in the unimployment figure due out today. I doubt it myself!

    The private sector grew by nearly 170,000 jobs, but the monthly gain is around 90,000. That would suggest that the public sector lost yet another 80,000 jobs. Government is getting smaller. I trust that Republicans are pleased with this trend. After all, it is what they have been calling for, smaller government.

    But, there is something Republicans do not seem to understand or realize. Lliberals do not like big government, either. No one likes a bloated, wasteful bureaucracy. The problem for conservatives is that they seem to think that government bureaucracy includes teachers, firefighters, and law enforement officers. It doesn't.

    ►The economy gained just 18,000 jobs in June, the government reported Friday, sharply missing most expectations and coming in even weaker than the paltry 25,000 jobs added in May.◄

    THAT WAS LAST YEAR, 2011!!!

    This year in May, 2012 – we added 69,000 jobs and in June, 95,000 jobs – BETTER THAN LAST YEAR, I would say.
    And the blame was the same – Washington and the "uncertainty" of taxes – the same typical ironic dismay

    Instead of BIG CORPs trying to buy an election through R-Money, they need to get off the billion/trillions of dollars they are sitting on and create jobs by putting the middle class of AMERICA back to work!!!

    Sorry CNN. The June jobs report shows only 80k new jobs added, which is only 3k more than May. Hang on just a little longer, America. Help is on the way.

    Guess what the figures are out and it is another in a long line of failures for the most incompetent, inept, corrupt union toady president in history. Remember he told us if we gave a trillion dollars worth of tax money to the corrupt union bosses and those democrat liberals, our unemployment rate would not go above 8%. Since he and the democrat liberals gave it away, it has never been below. HE LIED.

    The new hope for jobs will not happen until November.
