The U.S economy added 75,000 jobs in May, the Labor Department reported Friday, well below expectations.

Both the unemployment rate and labor force participation rate stayed even at 3.6 percent and 62.8 percent respectively. 

Economists expected the U.S. to add roughly 185,000 jobs in May after a whopping gain of 263,000 jobs in April.

The federal report comes after the ADP National Employment report released Wednesday found that private payrolls in May increased by just 27,000 jobs.
