There Are Literally More Jobs Than Unemployed Workers Can Fill Right Now

At this time, there are 6.7 million job openings, but only 6.4 million people currently out of work who might fill them, according to a report the Bureau of Labor Statistics released on Tuesday.

It’s news that confirms even the left-leaning New York Timesglowing take on how good the job market is right now in light of the uptick in job numbers during the month of May (223,000, up from the expected 188,000).

The unemployment rate is sitting at 3.8%, an 18-year low.

While some (cough) could complain about slow wage growth and highlight the very real problem of poverty in America, all these numbers are not to be scoffed at.
