Job Growth Slows, Hiring Down

Finding a job remains a job in itself for some Americans. More than 100,000 new jobs were added to the U.S. economy in March, according to numbers released Friday, a sharp drop from the 200,000 or more jobs added in the preceding three months—and the 250,000 expected in the report. Things are getting better, economists cautioned, but they’re not getting better at the same rate as they were before. There were some other good signs, however, including a slight increase in wages and a decrease in the number of government posts cut.
