U.S. private-sector job growth slowed in June, but was ahead of what Wall Street analysts were expecting. 

The U.S. economy added 692,000 private-sector jobs this month, a decline from the downwardly revised 886,000 jobs gained in May, according to the ADP National Employment Report released Wednesday. Analysts surveyed by Refinitiv were expecting the addition of 600,000 jobs. 

"The labor market recovery remains robust, with June closing out a strong second quarter of jobs growth," said Nela Richardson, chief economist at ADP.
