Stronger showinig than expected

In a sign of stronger-than-expected economic activity, employers added 180,000 jobs in March, the government said on April 6.

The unemployment was essentially unchanged at 4.4% the Bureau of Labor Statistics said.

The increase in nonfarm payrolls, seen as one of the best indicators of economic momentum, was much stronger that the gain of 135,000 expected on Wall Street.

Employment increased in construction, retail trade and health care while manufacturing continued to trend down.
