Latest US Job Numbers & Trends!

The U.S. job numbers were just released…those who took notice know they reported August as the 95th month in a row for job gains, a spike in wage gains, yet a drop in labor participation overall, plus a steady 3.9% unemployment rate.  With those types of statistics, yet unemployment at an 18 year low, it’s no wonder companies are struggling to find qualified candidates for open positions—especially temp jobs.  

That said, the non-seasonally adjusted Bureau of Labor Statistics’ August Report shows a slightly different picture.

Either way you look at it, the facts are clear: The segment of the population unemployed and seeking work, is slim to none.  Companies needing quality temporary employees will find them hard to come by.   And, sourcing for permanent openings will likely require tapping into the passive candidate market.
