F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – The April employment report was in line with expectations.

Nonfarm payrolls rose by 223,000, while the weather-restrained March increase was revised down to +85,000 (from +126,000) – leaving an average monthly gain of 154,000 for March and April.
