The U.S. economy added a robust 211,000 jobs in April, better than expected as the labor market rebounded after a weak start to the year.

The unemployment rate fell from 4.5 percent to 4.4 percent, the lowest level in a decade, the Labor Department reported on Friday.

From The Hill:

Private-sector payrolls grew by 177,000 last month after adding 255,000 jobs in March, payroll processor ADP reported on Wednesday.

Employers added 522,000 jobs during the first three months of the year.

Job gains have averaged 174,000 over the past three months.

The economy is edging closer to full employment and wages rise.
