U.S. Employment Growth Slows In March

Employment growth in the U.S. slowed to 5 percent on a yearly basis in March from 11 percent logged in February, Monster Worldwide said Friday.

On a monthly basis, the employment index remained unchanged at 143 in March.

The report showed that 16 of the 20 industries monitored by the index showed positive annual growth trends. Commerce activity continued to maintain steady momentum with transportation and warehousing, retail and wholesale trade recording solid annual growth rates.

The employment index is a broad and comprehensive monthly analysis of U.S. online job demand conducted by Monster Worldwide based on a real-time review of millions of employer job opportunities culled from a large, representative selection of corporate career sites and job boards.
