The US economy ended a tumultuous week with disappointing news.
America added 103,000 jobs in March, slower than previous months and well below expectations.
Economists had predicted 185,000 jobs.
The unemployment rate stayed at 4.1%, the lowest since 2000. It has come down steadily from a peak of 10% in 2009.
Wages grew 2.7% in March compared with a year ago, in line with expectations. Wage growth is one of the few yardsticks in the job market not to pick up meaningfully in recent years.
