Once again the hunt is on for a group of subway riders who rescued a fellow straphanger who fell onto the tracks. Alexa Conto, a 20-year-old fashion student, tells the Daily News that she believes she fainted while waiting for the D train at Brooklyn’s 71st Street station on Tuesday morning. Several people jumped onto the tracks to save her, and the MTA operator spotted them and stopped the train just in time. New Yorkers can be pretty decent, when we aren’t beating each other withcrutches.
Most job gains were in the leisure and hospitality sector, which includes restaurants
Hiring accelerated sharply in February as restaurants and other hospitality businesses reopened, adding 379,000 to U.S. payrolls and fueling renewed growth as the coronavirus pandemic eases.
U.S. employers added jobs for the second straight month in February, the Labor Department said Friday, in what marks a sharp pickup from earlier this winter.
The unemployment rate, determined by a separate survey, ticked down to 6.2% last month. The jobless rate is well down from a 14.8% peak in April 2020, but remains above pre-pandemic levels, when unemployment was near 50-year lows.

What they did could be a violation of House rules.
