Hiring picks up, unemployment falls

New York (CNNMoney) - U.S. employers ramped up their hiring in February, helping to lower the unemployment rate slightly.

The U.S. economy added 236,000 jobs in February, according to a Labor Department report released Friday. That's much stronger growth than in January, when employers hired a revised 119,000 workers.

    Any increase is good. This is happening in spite of this administration's policies, not because of them. The republicans need to keep doing their job, stopping as many of this administration's country killing policies as possible, or at least minimising the damage as much as they can.
