Jobs Report: Lower Than Expected

Via Politico:
The economy added a lower than expected 120,000 jobs in March, but the unemployment rate fell slightly to 8.2 percent, the Labor Department reported Friday.

That broke three straight months of job gains exceeding 200,000 - suggesting that the recovery is being hampered, with factors including high gasoline prices.

The March number was a wide miss of Wall Street projections that payrolls would increase by 203,000.
