    The unemployment rate has dipped below 4% for the first time since 2000.

    The United States added 164,000 jobs in April, the Labor Department reported Friday. That was slightly below what economists expected. Unemployment dropped to 3.9%, the lowest since December 2000.

    Wages grew 2.6% from a year earlier. That was also slightly below expectations.

    The report indicates another month of solid job growth for an economy that has been expanding for almost nine years — the second-longest streak on record.

    Damn that Trump!!!!!!!
    May the FORCE be with you!
