How the Dow Jones industrial average fared Friday

Stocks fell on Wall Street Friday after the government reported that U.S. employers added the fewest jobs in nine months in March. More people also gave up looking for work. The number of jobs grew at about half the pace of the previous six months. The report was worse than economists were expecting. The Standard & Poor's 500 logged its biggest weekly decline of the year.
