US job openings stay near 13-year high; hiring up
from The Associated Press via Boston Globe
The number of US job openings remained near the highest level in 13 years in July, and companies also stepped up hiring that month to the fastest pace in nearly seven years, two signs the job market is slowly healing. The tally of available jobs ticked down 2,000 to 4.673 million in July, from 4.675 million in June, the Labor Department said Tuesday. June’s figure was the highest since February 2001. The drop was led by a decline in government job postings. Businesses actually advertised slightly more jobs.
