(Undated) -- The Labor Department's April jobs report is out, and there's good news on two fronts. A total of 288-thousand jobs were added last month. Also, the nation's unemployment rate dropped four-tenths of a point down to six-point-three percent. Most economists had predicted the report would show employers added about 210-thousand jobs as the weather warmed up after the harsh winter. The unemployment rate was expected to tick down to six-point-six percent from six-point-seven percent in March. Despite the positive news, almost ten million Americans remain out of work.
