March job data is solid
U.S. employers added 192,000 jobs in March, a solid number that indicates the economy probably is coming out of its winter slowdown.
The national unemployment rate was unchanged between February and March, but the economy added about 37,000 more jobs in February than originally believed, according to data released Friday by the U.S. Department of Labor.
The national unemployment rate was 6.7 percent in March, unchanged from February. Most of the half-million U.S. residents who were looking for work last month were able to find jobs, according to the Labor Department.
