America’s deep jobs hole is getting filled, but oh-so slowly

This just in | Job Openings and Labor Turnover report, U.S. Labor Department, January 2012:

The number of job openings in January was 3.5 million, unchanged from December. Although the number of job openings remained below the 4.3 million openings when the recession began in December 2007, the number of job openings has increased 45 percent since the end of the recession in June 2009.

One thought on “America’s deep jobs hole is getting filled, but oh-so slowly

  1. One thing I really think has stifled the jobs recovery is the administration’s war on jobs. I think they would like you to believe that jobs are their number one priority, but spend most of their time pandering to voting blocks that champion anything but job creation. I outlined many of team Obama’s best work below. I really think just the impression that creating jobs is secondary is an abomination in this economic climate.
