Today’s Jobs Report in Pictures

Today’s solid jobs report shows that private employers have added jobs every month for five straight years. Unemployment has dropped sharply, though it has room to fall further.  To herald a truly healthy labor market, however, labor force participation should be higher – it fell in February as more people stopped looking for work than found jobs – which will mean a larger share of Americans should have a job; fewer people should be working part time because they can’t find full-time work; fewer people should experience long spells of unemployment before finding work; and wages should be rising faster.
