Though February’s jobs report was disappointing (only 20,000 jobs were added), results are expected to be better in March. “Fortunately, the U.S. economy is slowing from a fairly strong position. Employment growth has been fairly strong, unemployment is low and household balance sheets are relatively healthy,” Wells Fargo wrote in a note to clients last Friday. But 160,000 new jobs are expected to be added for the month of March.
