US jobs growth slows in March

US employers added fewer jobs than expected in March, with the economy adding 103,000 posts last month.

The figure from the Labor Department was below analysts’ expectations of about 193,000, and the dollar weakened against major currencies as a result.

March’s figure was a sharp slowdown from the 326,000 jobs that were created in February.

The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 4.1%.
