The U.S. Labor Department reports job growth expanded by 192,000 payrolls in March, but the unemployment rate remained at 6.7%. Wells Fargo Private Bank's Darrell Cronk tells TheStreet's Joe Deaux this report was in line with expectations, and suggests strengthening in the economy after months of unseasonably cold weather put a damper on the recovery. Cronk says investors should cheer the uptick in the labor force participation rate.
