As vaccination ramps up and relaxation in the COVID-19 protocol, more businesses have brought back workers resulting in a surge in the employment numbers in the U.S.
Employers added 379,000 jobs in February, breaking a two-month streak of minimal gains.
The growth was stronger than analysts had expected, but the activity did not significantly dent the jobless rate.
It dipped from 6.3% to 6.2%, reflecting the millions that remain out of work because of the virus.
