Job growth accelerated in March after a sluggish February, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistic’s monthly report released Friday. The U.S. economy added 196,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate remained steady at 3.8 percent.
Top industries for growth included health care, professional and technical services, and construction.
The number of jobs added exceeded experts’ expectations by about 20,000, which could “temper unease about the economy” after a somewhat rocky start to the year.
