Private-sector businesses increased by 247,000 jobs through April. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg expected a jump of 395,000 payrolls. The gain signals a significant slowdown from the growth seen through March.

The outlook was dim for small businesses. Firms with fewer than 50 employees lost 120,000 payrolls through the month, signalling the largest one-month decline for the group.

Businesses with at least 500 workers accounted for the larger part of the month’s overall gain adding 320,000 payrolls. Medium-sized firms with 50 and 499 workers created 46,000 payrolls.

Service-industry firms also led the way as virus infections remained at relatively low levels and the economy remained open. The industry added 202,000 jobs in April, led by a 77,000 payroll increase among leisure and hospitality firms.

Professional and business services followed with a gain of 50,000 jobs and education and health services created 48,000 private payrolls.
