The US economy saw a surge in hiring in March as vaccination increased, officials eased restrictions and people pushed to return to their pre-pandemic activities.
Employers added more than 900,000 jobs driven by re-openings at restaurants, bars, construction sites and schools.
The gains were the biggest since August and helped lower the unemployment rate to 6% from 6.2% in February.
However, overall employment remains far lower than before the Covid pandemic.
