June 5 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures extended their losses on Friday after jobs growth accelerated sharply in May and wages picked up, suggesting an interest rate hike in September was back on the table.

Nonfarm payrolls increased 280,000 last month, the largest gain since December, above the 225,000 that economists polled by Reuters had expected.
