96.1 percent employment in July 2018
WASHINGTON – Federal numbers say that US unemployment fell to the lowest in years, with 3.9 percent. In other words, over 96 percent of Americans that want jobs have them.
It’s the lowest since the peak of unemployment hit in 10% between 2009 and 2010.
Experts say that the skills gap is keeping the rest of the job openings from being fulfilled.
