NEW YORK (Reuters) – Private employers added 179,000 jobs in April, coming in shy of economists’ expectations, a report by a payrolls processor showed on Wednesday.
Economists surveyed by Reuters had forecast the ADP Employer Services report would show a gain of 198,000 jobs.
March private payrolls were revised up to an increase of 207,000 from a previously reported 201,000.
