  • Where Have All the Workers Gone?

    RCM ^ | 11/17/2015 | By Isabel Sawhill
    Employment rates among prime-age workers, especially men, have declined sharply over the last few decades. The Great Recession made matters worse. Recent declines in the unemployment rate have enticed some back into the active labor force but the long-term picture is still discouraging. When we compare the U.S. to other advanced countries, working-age adults are simply not working as much as adults in most European nations. What's going on here? As my colleague Gary Burtless notes, three developments have probably played a role. First, real wages have fallen by 28 percent for high-school educated men since 1980, making work much...
  • America has the most job openings in 15 years

    cnn money ^ | 6-9-2015
    American businesses have a lot of "we're hiring" signs up. There were 5.4 million job openings in the U.S. in April -- the highest number of openings in 15 years. It is a record high since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking monthly job openings in December 2000. The surge in job openings this spring was even better than expected, according Peter Boockvar, chief market analyst at the Lindsey Group. It's another sign that the economy appears to be rebounding and the winter slowdown was just a blip. Who's hiring? Over the past year, health care, business services and...

    Forbes ^ | 04/01/2015 | Steve Moore
    The great conundrum of the U.S. economy today is that we have record numbers of working age people out of the labor ‎force at the same time we have businesses desperately trying to find workers. As an example, the American Transportation Research Institute estimates there are 30,000 – 35,000 trucker jobs that could be filled tomorrow if workers would take these jobs–a shortage that could rise to 240,000 by 2022. While the jobs market overall remains weak, demand is high for in certain sectors. For skilled and reliable mechanics, welders, engineers, electricians, plumbers, computer technicians, and nurses, jobs are plentiful;...

Ashley Newhall of Philadelphia has a law degree and a master's in agricultural law, and she passed the bar in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. These days, she's working with some extremely demanding and exacting clients. Most of them are less than 3 years old. Newhall's primary income source for the past few years has been baby-sitting. Parents, said Newhall, are "blown away. They're like, 'Oh my gosh! You're the most overeducated nanny I've ever had.' " But jobs are scarce, and all that education came with six-figure debt for...

    Boeing Co is hiring contract workers at its factory in South Carolina as it boosts output of the 787 Dreamliner and seeks to avoid manufacturing issues linked to the production increase, according to people familiar with the situation. Boeing confirmed on Wednesday that it is hiring at the facility but declined to provide details.

Technical and computer-related know-how placed much further down the list. Jobs are going unfilled as a result, which hurts companies and employees. The annual global Talent Shortage Survey from ManpowerGroup finds that nearly 1 in 5 employers worldwide cant fill positions because they cant find people with soft skills.

    Liberals are very excited that Texas Governor Rick Perry decided not to run for a full fourth term. But a closer examination of jobs number shows that if not for Perry, Obamas job record would be a worse joke than what it already is. From the start of February 2009 (Obamas first full month in office) through the end of May 2013 (the last month there is available Federal data for jobs per state) the United States had a net gain of 2,076,000 jobs. In the same time, Texas had a net gain of 882,582 jobs. In other words, 43%...

"Walmarts recent announcement of a plan to hire returning honorably discharged veterans is more about public relations than honoring our heroes," Trumka said in a statement. "That this effort was valorized by President Obama and Vice President Biden reflects an acceptance of economic failure out of line with Americas history or future."

As the economist who conceived the ideas at the heart of the Massachusetts health-care law, he is arguably the intellectual godfather of the Affordable Care Act. All of which would make him a natural fit for the Independent Payment Advisory Board, the new, 15-member panel that has the authority to reduce Medicare doctors reimbursements and pilot new ways to deliver high quality care for less. Theres just one tiny problem: Gruber has absolutely no interest in serving on...

For all those young people graduating from college (with $150,000 in student loans) who are unable to get a job, here is our advice: tell your parents, and grandparents, to retire already.

    In September, 238,000 American jobs went unfilled, despite employers best efforts. At the same time, unemployment was at 7.8 percent nationally. And believe it or not, this was no statistical oddity. The manufacturing sector has long had trouble finding skilled applicants for its jobs. Around 48 percent of manufacturing companies are looking to hire, according to the most recent report from ThomasNet, a company that helps connect producers and suppliers. But 67 percent of manufacturing companies see a moderate to severe shortage of skilled workers, and last year, as many as 600,000 jobs went unfilled, according to a report from...

    One puzzle of this somber economy is the existence of unfilled jobs in the midst of mass unemployment. You might think (I did) that with almost 14 million Americans unemployed - and nearly half those for more than six months - that companies could fill almost any opening quickly. Not so. Somehow, there's a mismatch between idle workers and open jobs. Economists call this "structural unemployment." Just how many jobs are affected is unclear; there are no definitive statistics. Economist Harry Holzer of Georgetown University thinks the unemployment rate might be closer to 8 percent than today's 9.1 percent if...

While its still not known exactly how many will be hired, heres whats clear: Under the new law, the IRS is required to fine taxpayers thousands of dollars if they do not purchase health insurance.

    "Exelon is looking to provide these proposals to Chinese businesses, so someone who is respectful and understands Chinese culture is preferred. An arrogant American will not work well in this role," the listing read. The ad, posted by Viva USA, an information technology consulting firm, has since been removed.

    These are more "jobs Americans won't do," according to Publix supermarkets. In southwest Florida, where there's 14 percent unemployment, the supermarket chain is importing Brazilians and Peruvians on J-1 "cultural exchange" visas. Unbelievable. I'd boycott the chain if I lived down there.

    My Grandpa used to have a tiny workshop outside the mobile home he lived in with my Nana. I remember seeing rows of baby food jars filled with all sorts of nails, screws, and other little parts and tools that were essential to his handmade projects. Every once in a while hed say, Im going outside to putter for a while, and thats what he would do. Putter. That word is still in the dictionary but hardly a part of our everyday vocabulary any more.

    I placed an ad for a medical receptionist ($10-$14/hour) and received over 100 resumes. I didn't know where to start and have interviewed two dozen people for this single position and the desperation out there is very real. People are begging for jobs. Thank you for nothing Mr. President. There's definitely no green shoots in the real economy.
