The US economy created only 20,000 jobs last month, far from the expected 180,000. This is the worst monthly performance since September 2017 and compared to the 311,000 jobs added in January and the 227,000 in December, it's downright alarming.

Economists, however, were not particularly alarmed. Many have suggested that the closure of the government, the bad weather that limited construction activity and a natural retreat from a very strong January report made the February employment numbers an anomaly.
