Hiring Best In Three Years

The number of new jobs hired for in the United States in March was the best in three years.

From the New York Times

“After more than two years in which more than 8 million jobs were lost, the country’s nonfarm payrolls surged in March.Employers added 162,000 jobs last month, and employment numbers in the previous two months were revised upward. Nationwide, the unemployment rate held steady at 9.7 percent. To many ordinary, out-of-work Americans, the recovery may finally start to feel real. “The key message from this report is that we’ve finally turned the corner,” said Nigel Gault, chief United States economist at IHS Global Insight. “Going forward, we should expect things to strengthen further over the rest of the year.”

Here is the actual report from the Department of Labor.

While we have a long way to go, things are getting better.

People looking for work need to have some hope.
