The latest pulse on the U. S. economy comes out Friday.

The Work Dept publishes the March jobs report at eighth:30 a. m. Here are four things to see out for in the report.

one. Healthy work gains: Economists surveyed by CNNMoney predict the economy added a healthy 199.000 jobs in March. In Feb the economy gained 242.000 jobs. Still, a gain around 200.000 is considered good.

two. Unemployment stays steady: The U. S. unemployment rate is already very low at four.9%. Experts believe the unemployment rate continued to stay at that level in March. Some economists are predicting it could drop to 4.8%, which would be its lowest rate in 8 years.

three. Lousy wage growth: Between Oct and January, wage growth showed signs of life, picking up to its highest level since two thousand nine. But latest mo Americans' paychecks only grew 2.2 percent compared to a year ago, and economists believe it'll be more of the same in March. Lackluster wage growth is a large reason why people don't perceive grand about the economy despite unemployment being so low.

4. Part-time problems: America has another major problem: a lot of part-time workers. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen says the high no of part-time workers is one of her biggest concerns right now.

There are still six million people working part-time who wish a full-time job. Before the recession there were only about 4.2 million of them. The no of these workers has arrive down in recent years but it'south still historically high. See to look if the no of these part-timers drops significantly below six million for the first time since the recession began in two thousand-seventh.
