WASHINGTON -- A private survey shows U.S. businesses boosted hiring in May modestly, a sign that the job market is recovering only slowly.

Payroll provider ADP says that businesses added 133,000 jobs last month. That's higher than the revised total of 113,000 jobs it reported for April, which was the weakest in seven months.
