Some good news on the job front! The U.S. economy added 916-thousand jobs in March as the unemployment rate fell to six-percent. That's the most new monthly jobs since August. Job creation was nearly double the 468-thousand in February, when the jobless rate was six-point-two percent. Service sector growth again led the advance, particularly in the hard-hit leisure and hospitality industry. Those payrolls rose by 280-thousand in March, on top of a revised gain of 384-thousand in February. Analysts expected to see the economy add 680-thousand jobs last month.
