The Jobs Report for March

A new jobs report has mixed news for the nation’s economic recovery. Hiring slowed in March, with only 120 thousand jobs added and unemployment rate fell to eight point two percent. The drop in unemployment is good news but its due to a shrinking work force. 164000 workers left the job market. Overall the job market is still not out of the deep hole left by the financial crisis of the 8.8 million jobs lost, about 3.6 million have been added back.
