A top adviser to President Barack Obama predicts positive job growth, but also says there's a "big hole" in the economy from job losses due to the recession.

Christina Romer, who heads the White House Council of Economic Advisers, says the latest jobs report shows solid employment growth even though temporary workers were a large part of the gain.

About 162,000 jobs were added in March, the most created in nearly three years. But unemployment remains at 9.7 percent.

Romer says consumers still face "a lot of head winds" from the financial crisis with debt and credit difficulties making stronger job growth more difficult.

Romer appeared Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press."
