America added 211,000 jobs in April 2017 and the unemployment rate fell to a ten-year low, according to a report released Friday morning by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The report is the third time in four months that the U.S. has added more than 200,000 jobs in a month.

Strong sectors for the month included:
- Leisure and hospitality: +55K jobs
