(Adds table, link to graphic) MEXICO CITY, June 23 (Reuters) - Mexico's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate rose in May to its highest since March, the national statistics agency said on Monday, pointing to a sluggish labor market in Latin America's No. 2 economy. Mexico is struggling to recover from a slowdown last year, and the government has cut back economic growth expectations to 2.7 percent this year after a weaker-than-expected first quarter.
