Hiring will not occur without an improvement in the economy. Definitely, the economy is slowly improving. It follows that jobs are increasing slowly. In April there was a very favorable increase of 290,000 jobs, the highest number in four years!
The improved situation caused so many more people to pour into the labor force in search of employment that un-employment increased from 9.7% to 9.9%
Hiring by the federal government during the census period added many of these jobs, but the hiring by private employers is surprisingly strong at 240,000 jobs.
Many have expected miracles from our President, not a miracle maker but a man. His policies are working, and the future will become brighter slowly.
