Economy added 431,000 jobs in March despite worries over slowing growth

Nonfarm payrolls expanded by 431,000 for the month, while the unemployment rate was 3.6%, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been looking for 490,000 on payrolls and 3.7% for the jobless level.

Average hourly earnings, a closely watched inflation metric, increased 0.4% on the month, in line with expectations.
