U.S. job growth continued to surge last month, dropping unemployment to its lowest point in 49 years.
The economy added 263,000 jobs in April, more than were added in March and February combined. Unemployment was at 3.6 percent, the lowest rate since December of 1969.
It's an impressive rebound from earlier this year, when the partial government shutdown, rising interest rates, and trade tensions with China led to a mini-slump in January and February.
