THE payroll increase was slightly below the 190,000 new jobs economists were expecting. The U.S. government contributed significantly to the jobs increase: 48,000 of the jobs created came from the hiring of 48,000 temporary workers for the U.S. Census. Rich Blake and Dalia Fahmy report in abcNEWS.

The Census hiring in March, however, was lower than some were expecting. The Census is expected to hire of 1.2 million temp workers this year.

The new jobs numbers don’t mean much to Wilton, Conn., resident Sean Byrnes. About a month ago, the 41-year-old father of four lost his job as a salesman at a Manhattan-based financial research firm. He has struggled to find so much as even a job interview since then.

“I talk to headhunters and they say the same thing,” he says. “No one is hiring.”
