- The Washington Times - Wednesday, April 1, 2009

Private-sector employment decreased by 742,000 in March, according to a report Wednesday by Automatic Data Processing Inc.

The Roseland, N.J.-based company said its National Employment Report, in partnership with Macroeconomic Advisers LLC, is derived from payroll data and measures the change in total non-farm private employment each month.

The report was released about an hour before Wall Street opened and is expected to result in a drop in U.S. stock prices as the second quarter begins.
