  • 9:17 PM » Private Sector Payrolls Finally Top Pre-Recession Peak
    Published Sun, Apr 06 2014 9:17 PM by webfeeds.brookings.edu
    The latest BLS employment report contained good news about job gains in March. Private payrolls increased 192,000 in March, hitting a total of more than 116 million and finally erasing the steep payroll losses of the Great Recession.

Employment gains in the health care sector rebounded in February and March after two months of unusual weakness in December and January. Private business services have been a major source of job growth since the recovery began. The March payroll numbers saw a continuation of this trend. Half the payroll gains in the sector occurred in the temporary help services industry, which added more than 28,000 jobs in March. Recent robust job growth in temporary help services suggest private sector payroll gains will...
