"Following an overly strong April, May marked the smallest gain since the expansion began," said Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute. "Large companies continue to remain strong as they are better equipped to compete for labor in a tight labor market."

Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody's Analytics, said, "Job growth is moderating. Labor shortages are impeding job growth, particularly at small companies, and layoffs at brick-and-mortar retailers are hurting."

The matched sample used to develop the ADP National Employment Report was derived from ADP payroll data, which represents 411,000 U.S. clients employing nearly 24 million workers in the U.S. The April total of jobs added was revised down from 275,000 to 271,000.
