Really 5000 away from 300K!!U.S. Economy Added 295,000 Jobs in February; Unemployment Rate at 5.5% - NYTimes.com: "The outlook for the economy became sunnier on Friday after the Labor Department reported that employers added 295,000 workers in February, far exceeding expectations, and also recorded a drop in the unemployment rate. The data, though, offered disappointing results for wage growth, which for months has barely budged.
The unemployment rate fell to 5.5 percent, its lowest since mid-2008, down from 5.7 percent in January. Last month, wages rose just 0.1 percent, according to the Labor Department, a disappointment coming off an increase of 0.5 percent in January." 'via Blog this'
