Unemployment has gone up for the first time in nearly a year.

According to the June Jobs Report, unemployment rose to 4% last month, although 213,000 jobs were added to the economy.

Wages are also up 2.7% from a year ago, and showed very little change from May.

That usually means there are more people entering the workforce.
