Records show that the U.S. had more job openings than people who were unemployed this spring. American job openings shot up to 6.7 million toward the end of April, compared to the 6.3 million Americans who were unemployed.
Since this record-keeping began back in 2000, this marks the first time the number of available positions exceeds the number of job seekers in America. Right now, the market is opening up possibilities for those who have struggled in recent years. The unemployment rate ticked down further in May to just three point eight percent, the lowest since the record-keeping began back in 2000.
