Hiring slows, unemployment falls

Hiring slowed dramatically in March, clouding optimism about the strength of the recovery, CNNMoney's Annalyn Censky reports.

Employers added 120,000 jobs in the month, the Labor Department reported Friday, marking a significant slowdown in hiring from February, when the economy added 240,000 jobs.

Meanwhile, the unemployment rate fell to 8.2% as workers dropped out of the labor force.

    I agree that people do over react about snow a tad more than I ever did up in New England- I went to Costco on Friday only bucaese I originally wanted to go there earlier to pick up supplies for the house. It wasn't actually that bad but going to the Supermarket afterwards was.
