Jobs Added

Including Census and other government workers. 48,000 of the 163,000 were Census Workers and another 39,000 federal workers were added, if I read the article correctly. 36,900 workers were added in the private sector.

You do the public/private jobs math.

Anyone paying attention sees this as bad news:

Despite the sharp turnaround in employment last month, weaknesses still remain. A broad measure of unemployment that includes the number of workers marginally attached to the labor force and those working part time for economic reasons edged up to 16.9 percent from 16.8 percent in February.

About 44.1 percent unemployed workers in March had been out of a job for 27 weeks or more.
