US Economy Added Only 103000 Jobs In March

US Economy Added Only 103000 Jobs In March

"Even though March was weaker than we were expecting, there is still evidence of an acceleration in the underlying pace of employment growth", Paul Ashworth, chief USA economist at Capital Economics, wrote in a note.

The unemployment rate has hovered at 4.1 per cent since October as people piled into the labor market. Exports and business investments have increased, and Ontario's unemployment rate has been below the national average each month for nearly three years.

Average hourly wages rose, climbing 2.7 percent compared with a year earlier, the department said.

Ontario has added more than 800,000 net new jobs since the recession. "Anecdotal reports indicate that employers are increasingly willing to take on and train workers they would not have considered in the past".

Economists had expected the report to show 185,000 jobs were created in March while the unemployment rate was expected to fall to 4%, according to estimates from Bloomberg. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast the economy adding 193,000 jobs in March and the unemployment rate dropping to 4.0 per cent.

This year, he said in an email, "It isn't out of the realm of possibilities that we could see a jobless rate as low as 3.5 percent, last seen in 1969 when the Beatles were still cranking out hits".

Kids egg each other on in Easter egg hunts
It took the youngsters one minute and 12 seconds to clear the hospital's front lawn during the 21st-annual Easter egg hunt there. She said one of the main reasons parents signed up for the Easter egg hunt was because it was a family-oriented event.

The Dow, which prior to the release had been expected to open at around 24,242, is now tipped to start proceedings at around 24,293, presumably on the basis that the Fed will now slow down its interest rate hike program.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said Friday that such measures "suggest a labor market that is in the neighborhood of maximum employment", meaning that few workers are still on the sidelines and a further decline in the unemployment rate could raise inflation. On Thursday, Trump ordered his chief trade negotiator to consider imposing tariffs on an additional $100 billion of Chinese products.

For example, a rising number of working-age Americans have begun looking for a job and finding one, reversing a trend from the first few years after the recession when numerous unemployed grew discouraged and stopped looking for work. Either of those numbers would look more like the expansion Americans have grown to know these last nine years than some new economic world.

Analysts said that the cold weather may have contributed to the slowdown. Payrolls in the sector fell 15,000, the first drop since last July, after surging 65,000 in February.

Jobs were not added across the board, as they were in previous months. Retail, however, fell, with 4,400 jobs lost during the month. Excluding the addition of 1,000 workers from government payrolls, the private sector added just 102,000 for March.
