Rosy picture for US labour market

Comment on this story

US JOB openings rose in June to the highest level in more than 13 years, firming up the labour market picture for the second half of the year. The number of unfilled positions climbed by 94 000 to 4.67 million, the most since February 2001, from a revised 4.58 million in May, a report from the US Labor Department showed yesterday. The increase in openings means the healing in the labour market is broadening. – Bloomberg
