Survey: US companies added 214,000 jobs in February
WASHINGTON - U.S. businesses added a healthy 214,000 jobs last month, led by gains in construction and business services, a private survey says.
Payroll processor ADP said hiring by private companies was up from 205,000 in January. The better-than-expected gains provide more evidence that the U.S. job market remains strong despite economic weakness overseas.
Professional and business services companies added 59,000 jobs and construction firms hired 27,000.
The ADP report comes out two days before the U.S. government's official jobs report.
