new york. good morning jill. >> good morning. >> what is expect in tomorrow's report. >> reporter: well, we had a rotten report for march just 126,000 jobs created so in this report we are looking for a bounce back, probably 220,000 jobs. unemployment rates should go down to 5.4 percent. now by the the way despite that disappoint ing reading last month the economy is adding over 3.1 million jobs in the past year a alone. so we are doing a lot better in the labor market. >> all right. we hear this is a surprise that could becoming for workers what is that surprise. >> wow okay, we are hoping and not sure but the the economy is certainly poised to deliver something americans have been looking for for just about eight years how about a raise yeah. nice right. the recent data is showing that compensation increased in the first quarter by 2.6 percent from a year ago. 2.8 percent in the private sector really got peoples hopes now. this is the the best pace
since 2008. just remember during the last expansion private sector wages were about 3 percent annual increases so believe it or not we are getting close to getting back to normal. not there yet. >> so does this mean that workers can actually negotiate better pay packages. >> reporter: check this out according to a career builder.com survey. are, two thirds say they are willing to negotiate salary offers. if you are ready to ask, here is a bit of the tip. there is emerging evidence that using a range rather than a single number may really help you increase your total comp. set a good number, at bottom end equivalent to the one you would have used as a single dollar offer and make the higher number 20 percent. if you are out there looking around you want a 50 you this dollars salary you suggest a range 50 to 60,000 to your potential boss and psychologically the boss is very unlikely to go below that $50,000 range.
so good luck. our fingers are crossed for wage increasing for everyone. >> let the nationwide negotiating begin. thanks jill. shaquille o'neal is a big man, so when he falls, everyone holds their breath. up next, video of that kiehl going down and a going down heart. may give you perfect polish but you that gelman cure is so popular at nail salons but could be putting your health at risk. swann is on the road to recovery after being found nearly dead at a new jersey state park. i'm cleve bryan. coming up why animal experts are looking at these burn marks all over her head. >> still ahead celebrity selfie that is turning head, kevin bacon, he is just unrecognizable, i have seen this picture you would never in a million years guess it was philly's kevin bacon. >> i will know it is him.
you've tried to forget your hepatitis c. but you shouldn't forget this. hep c is a serious disease. left untreated it can lead to liver damage and potentially liver cancer. but you haven't been forgotten. there's never been a better time to rethink your hep c because people like you may benefit from scientific advances that could help cure your hep c. visit hepchope.com or call a hep c educator to help prepare you for a conversation with your hep c specialist. be careful next time you get a gelman cure
dermatologist say it could lead to skin cancer. polish itself is is not the problem but the rather way nails are tried using uv light. if you are salon that has the option use led drying lights instead. if you are getting your nails done frequently under that uv light it can also make your nails more brittle. so be careful. 6:43. traffic and weather together on the the three's. here's katie. >> lets check with our weather watchers this morning. we have a variety pack of temperatures reported. we have 40's, 50's, a couple 60's reported but we will start on the cool end here. 48 degrees from alex, he has full sunshine in mays landing right now and certainly cool start to the day but that will change quickly as we keep that sun around. 60 degrees within the last few minutes from greg, very up to date observation but he generally is finding cloud in marshall ton delaware, except for this one piece of to the the north. we are seeing cloud thin out from north to south and see that reflect on storm scan. john jenkins sent in that in
mixture of sun and cloud in perkasie at 55 degrees, and he referenced perfect sleeping weather we have had. it has been so comfortable and will stay that way into tonight as well. we have to touch on the the south, even though this storm system, may gather tropical characteristics, it could even become the first named storm of the season that hasn't technically begun yet ana would be the name. it will not be a direct impact to us but it will start to move north and start to basically fun until some more cloud and moisture to our area specifically by this weekend. we're heating backup in the mid 80's. but because of the weak steering flow we will even up with some clouds out there and possibly a shower on the saturday, in the enough to cancel your outdoor plans. then we will have some fog to contend with on sunday. of course sunday is in the only mothers day but race for the the the cure. we may have fog issues, but 73 degrees at the the start of the race inn incredibly mild
