After a bit of winter hibernation, the US job market is waking up this spring.

192,000 jobs were added to payrolls last month, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Those job gains came entirely from the private sector.

That means non-government employment is back to its peak before the financial crisis.

The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 6.7-percent.

The news gave Wall Street a boost.

Both the Dow and the S&P 500 opened at record highs this morning following the report.
