Upbeat jobs news for the US

On World Business Report today we decode the latest US jobs figures. The US economy created 236,000 jobs in February - much more than expected. We have a special report from New York.

We get a round-up of the day on Wall Street.

Plus, as part of the BBC's "What If" season and to coincide with International Womens Day we ask "what if there were more women in work?"
