    Employers add most jobs in 3 years in March - USATODAY.com

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The economy created the largest number of jobs last month since the recession began, while the unemployment rate remained at 9.7% for the third straight month.
    The Labor Department said employers added 162,000 jobs in March, the most in three years but below analysts' expectations of 190,000. The total includes 48,000 temporary workers hired for the U.S. Census, also fewer than many economists forecast.

    Private employers added 123,000 jobs, the most since May 2007.

    Why not? Didn't the right do the same thing when Bush was president?
    Remember jobless recovery?
    I don't seem to recall the right complaining about that at the time.

    err, yes it is good news, considering we were LOSING 600-800 thousand a month about a year ago... Any increase would be good news.

    Is it great news? No. Does it mean we're out of the woods? No. Is it ironclad evidence that things are turning around? Yes.
