WASHINGTON — Employers added a robust 192,000 jobs in March, the government said Friday, and revisions to earlier months point to an improving economy with underlying strength.
Coming after a couple of soft months, the March numbers were a sigh of relief. March numbers suggest that weather, and not some structural problem, slowed hiring in recent months.
Revisions showed that January and February were stronger than first thought, with a combined additional 37,000 jobs.
The unemployment rate held steady in March at 6.7 percent.
