U.S. Added 379,000 Jobs In February, Unemployment Little Changed

February's jobs number is coming in much better than expected.

A Labor Department report shows the U.S. added 379,000 jobs, which is much higher than the 200,000 economists projected. The unemployment rate also fell slightly to 6.2% last month. Most of the job gains happened in the leisure and hospitality industry as pandemic restrictions eased in some parts of the country. Food services and bars led the way followed by gambling and recreation.
