The Bureau of Labor Statistics will release the July jobs report Friday.
The report is likely to show evidence of progress in the labor market. Experts say they anticipate a positive employment report with a steady holding rate.
The employment rate fell to 6% back in June. That drop was the lowest level the rate has been in six years.
This report comes after a busy week where the GDP, or gross domestic product, showed a 4% growth in the second quarter.
