The March jobs report was released early Friday morning, and hiring was lower than expected.
  
The U.S. economy adds 88,000 jobs. That is the fewest added in the last 9 months, and much lower than the 195 to 200-thousand expected from economists.

However, the unemployment rate has fallen to 7.6%. That's the lowest it's been in four years.
