Winning: Job Openings Hit New Record High of 7.1 Million

U.S. job openings rose to a new record high in August, an indication that the U.S. economy continued to expand rapidly as the trade war with China escalated and Hurricane Florence hit the Carolinas.

The monthly Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, or JOLTS, released by the Labor Department on Tuesday showed job openings rose to 7.136 million. Economists had forecast 6.9 million.

The prior month was revised up to 7.077 million, the first time this number has ever exceeded 7 million. Until April of 2017, there had never been more than 6 million job openings.

Well with all those job openings it's time to make people who are receiving any type of public assistance and are physically ably to get a job and at least pay part of their own way. If they lack an education they can at least pick pick up trash, anything other than sitting on their fat butt living off the hard working tax payers. I'm related to one of the type I'm talking about and it really pisses me off.
