Modest Wage Gains In February As Economy Adds Robust 313,000 Jobs

Men shovel snow off the top of a building under construction in Franklin Lakes, N.J., on Thursday. Job growth in February was led by a sharp increase in construction employment.

The largest increase in jobs in 1 1/2 years was accompanied by a 2.6 percent year-on-year increase in wages, a slowdown from January’s pace. The unemployment rate held at 4.1 percent.
