Today, private staffing and business services firm ADP released the latest installment of their National Employment Report indicating that the situation for private employment in the U.S. improved in April as private employers added 220,000 jobs in the month bringing the total employment level 2.06% above the level seen in April 2013. 

Look for Friday’s (possibly postponed) BLS Employment Situation Report to likely show somewhat similar trends.
