The U.S. labor market added 103,000 jobs in March 2018, which is substantially slower than previous months and below expectations. U.S. economists projected job growth of 185,000 for the month. The job market is increasing at a slower rate compared to the previous two months. The national unemployment rate remained 4.1% for the sixth month in a row and the lowest rate since 2000. However, this is slightly above economist's prediction of 4.0% unemployment rate. The labor rate participation rate slightly decreased to 62.9%.
