Private-sector employment shed a total of 2.76 million jobs in May, Automatic Data Processing Inc. reported Wednesday. The gain was well below forecasts from economists surveyed by Econoday who expected a loss of 8.66 million. In April, the private sector shed 19.56 million jobs.

Small employers lost 435,00 jobs in May. Mid-sized companies shed 722,000 jobs. And large businesses, with 500 employees or more, axed 1.6 million. The service producing sector lost 1.97 million jobs, while manufacturing shed 719,000 jobs.

The ADP data hasn't lined up with government data since the pandemic began in March. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch expect the economy lost an additional 7.4 million jobs in May after losing 21 million in March and April.

"While the labor market is still reeling from the effects of the pandemic, job loss likely peaked in April, as many states have begun a phased reopening of businesses,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, cohead of the ADP Research Institute.
