As jobs grew lesser than expected in March, the unemployment rate fell to a new two-year low. After the Labor Department’s employment report showed nonfarm payrolls increased by 431,000 jobs last month, futures pared gains, economists had forecast payrolls increasing 490,000. The jobless rate dropped to 3.6%, the lowest since February 2020, while average hourly earnings increased 0.4% after edging up 0.1% in February.
