US manufacturing shrinks for first time in 3 years

• AP

U.S. manufacturing shrank in June for the first time in nearly three years, adding to signs that economic growth is weakening.

The slowdown comes as U.S. employers have scaled back hiring, consumers have turned more cautious, Europe faces a recession and manufacturing has slowed in big countries like China.
