After reporting a substantial increase in US employment in the previous month, the Labor Department released a report on Friday showing job growth slowed by much more than anticipated in the month of March.
The nation's unemployment rate stayed unchanged at 4.1 percent.
Economists had been expecting a payrolls gain of 193,000 and the unemployment rate to decline one-tenth of a point to 4 percent. "The job market is widely regarded to be close to full employment". Economists expected average hourly earnings to rise 0.3% over the prior month and 2.7% over the prior year.
However, wage growth picked up in March. In March, the Fed announced to raised interest rate to a range of 1.5 percent to 1.75 percent, marking the sixth time since the financial crisis that it has raised rates.
The jobs numbers are closely watched by Federal Reserve policymakers.
Average hourly wages rose, climbing 2.7 percent compared with a year earlier, the department said.
Meanwhile, worker wages rose faster than economists had predicted, rising 0.3 per cent for the month to US$26.82 (S$35.35). Investors expected two more rate hikes this year. The economy grew at a 2.9 percent pace in the fourth quarter. If markets continue to roil over tariff battles, the capital that might have otherwise gone into job creation might get set aside - or may evaporate altogether, at least in the short run.
