April Jobs Numbers: AEI expert on what to expect

"The volatility in the labor market over the previous few months suggests that the economy is still not gaining enough steam to jumpstart a recovery. Given the disappointing March numbers, it is unlikely that this month's report will show a huge improvement. It is likely that the economy will add 120,000-140,000 jobs--small numbers that suggest protracted periods of sluggish growth still lie ahead of us." Aparna Mathur, AEI
