February Hiring Sets Up Stronger Spring Recovery
Restaurant employment booms amid renewed consumer spending and fewer restrictions
The U.S. economy is set up for a stronger recovery this spring after a February surge in hiring at restaurants and other hospitality businesses created the best monthly job growth since last fall.
Employers added 379,000 jobs in February and January gains were revised higher to 166,000 jobs, the Labor Department said Friday. The pickup comes after employers cut jobs late last year.
In February, most of the job gains occurred in the leisure and hospitality sector, which includes restaurants, adding 355,000 jobs.
