US jobs growth weaker than expected

US jobs growth was weaker than expected last month, a slowdown that analysts blamed partly on a tight labour market.
 
Employers added 155,000 jobs, with health care, manufacturing and transportation firms driving the growth.
 
The gains kept the unemployment rate unchanged at 3.7 per cent, near record lows.
 
The average hourly pay for private sector workers increased at an annual rate of 3.1 per cent.
