(WTVR) More encouraging news about jobs.

The private sector added 216,000 jobs last month, according to the ADP employment report.

On Friday, we’ll get a broader picture when the labor department releases February’s monthly jobs report.

That will include both the private and public sector. Economists are predicting the unemployment rate will remain at 8.3%.
