Trucking loses jobs in the month of March

In the month of March, the United States added 120,000 jobs. The previous three months, the economy saw an increase of at least 200,000 jobs per month. 


This slower incline in March reveals that the economy is still struggling to regain structure. The overall unemployment rate declined, and is currently at it's lowest number since 2009. The decline in this number is largely due to the fact that less people are actively seeking employment. 


In the trucking industry, 1,900 jobs were lost in March. This is the first time it has dropped since August. Although, the industry saw a decrease in job availability, the number of current jobs is still at a higher level than the same month in 2011.
