US jobs growth bigger than expected in February

US employers added 313,000 more workers in February, the fastest rate of jobs growth since July 2016, official figures show.
The better-than-expected figures came after Donald Trump's tax cuts buoyed business and consumer confidence in the world's biggest economy - though wage growth slowed.
America's unemployment rate remained unchanged at 4.1%.

The figures delivered a boost for President Donald Trump

January's annual wage growth rate - which had triggered fears over inflationary pressures - was also revised down from 2.9% to 2.8%.
