Jobless Claims Fall Yet Again

For another month the number of people in America filing for assistance due to unemployment has dropped. This is absolutely great news because it very directly shows that unemployment is beginning to decline and more importantly the economy is beginning to recover. Analysts around the world are hopeful that this is in fact proof and that is definitely great news for everyone.

Worldwide jobless claims and unemployment have also been declining, which does in fact show that America is not the only place the recovery is happening. Analysts say that if things continue to recover at the rate they are now it will likely only take a few years before things return to the state they were in before the recession hit. If this is the case then the entire world will soon be reaping the benefits of the economic recovery and this is absolutely the best news anyone could hope for at this point.

Regardless of how significant this recovery becomes it is still great news that more and more Americans are finally finding jobs. As unemployment drops and the number of people struggling to find work declines it will only be a matter of time before the economic situation as a whole begins to turn around. All in all this is great news and will continue to bring good news for months as the recovery takes place, hopefully it will continue as quickly as most analysts are expecting it to.

Potential Grocery Strike Resolved


Potential Grocery Strike Resolved

Potential Grocery Strike Resolved

Much of southern California has been fearing a potential grocery strike which would have essentially shut down thousands of grocery stores and distributors in the area. The strike was originally brought on by the union wanting higher wages and as the negotiations began to fail threats of a strike arose. A strike such as this has not been seen in a heavily populated area like southern California in quite a long time and as a result many analysts were concerned about what might happen.

Fortunately today the union and employers finally struck a deal which will prevent the strike from happening. 50,000 grocery employees immediately rejoiced in the fact that they would not be temporarily losing pay as they were forced on strike and at the same time the general population of California was happy to hear that there would not be any major grocery shortages as originally predicted. Overall everyone won in this situation as the affected employees got what they needed while at the same time the people of California were not severely affected by a major strike.

Analysts had originally feared that there would be as many as 50,000 temporarily unemployed workers should the strike actually happen; there were also predictions that this would have a significant impact on the economy of southern California. Once again everyone involved was simply happy to have found a way to avoid the strike in time to keep everything running smoothly at the grocery stores.

Job Advertisements hit 3 Year High

Job Advertisements hit 3 Year High

Each month various government agencies publish reports and data on jobs and job availability around the United States; throughout the past few months unfortunately job growth had been performing below the expected rate but today the U.S. Labor Department had some good news to spread. According to the Labor Department the months of July and August saw 3 year highs in terms of the number of jobs posted as available.

Obviously the number of available jobs is not as strong of a positive as the number of new employees but according to officials it is simply good to see companies are beginning to start hiring more people. The availability of jobs has been dramatically low for nearly all unemployed people but now that job postings are getting more common some of them finally have hope.

In July alone a reported 3.2 million jobs were posted as available; this is a significant increase from previous months and analysts say this growth will likely continue for the rest of the year. Hopefully following the increase of job postings the United States will also see an increase in the number of jobs being filled. For now it is good to see an increase in available jobs and job postings especially since the likely follow up is a significant decrease in the unemployment rate nationwide. More reports like this are expected towards the end of the next few months as more data is complied.

Jobs Increase Substantially

In times of economic turmoil it is somewhat uncommon to have any sort of good news surface. Fortunately the report on unemployment for March indicates that good things are in fact happening within the economy. More specifically unemployment is declining as more and more jobs are being created by various industries.

According to the U.S. Labor Department approximately 260,000 jobs were added last month alone, which is a significant increase overall. Of course there were hundreds of thousands of jobs eliminated last month as well but in the end the number of new jobs was greater than the number of jobs lost.

Not only was March a very successful month for employers, February was just as good. Two months in a row with substantial job increases has not happened since 2006 and many experts say it could be a sign that the economy is finally beginning to recover.

The U.S. Labor Department and other analysts also agree that the consistent increase in jobs will likely continue for the rest of 2011. What this means is that by the end of the year unemployment will likely decrease by another percentage or two. Currently unemployment is at a 2 year low of 8.8% and by the end of the year it is expected to be even lower. In the coming weeks more announcements about the economic situation are anticipated and overall analysts and economists say they should all carry plenty of good news about the current state of the U.S. economic situation along with the worldwide economic situation.
