Nationwide job growth smaller than expected

Some say Friday's job numbers are a perfect reflection of the ups and downs of the economy's stubborn recovery.

Although more people went to work last month, the number of people was smaller than expected.

On the positive side, the economy has added 858,000 jobs since December.

A new survey shows 30-percent of employers plant to hire full time workers soon.

“We see strong demand for our products, and we need to continue to expand both our internal and external supply chains so we can meet that demand,” said Jeff Turner, the Spirit Aerosystems President.

The stock market didn't get to react to the data. It was closed for Good Friday.
