Stock Market Dives During Obama’s Jobs Speech…

The economy added only 69,000 jobs in May, a result much worse than expected that will heighten fears the economy is sliding once again into a spring slowdown.

The report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics also revised figures for March and April downward, finding the economy created 49,000 fewer jobs than once thought in those two months. The jobless rate rose from 8.1 percent to 8.2 percent.

Stocks fell on the news, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average losing more than 200 points in early trading.
