For the last little while, the labor market has been very strong all across the country.  Because of high demand, wages are up and unemployment is down.  These conditions have been a boon to the economy in general, and have helped the stock market rebound from a horrible December.  The lasted report out today from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that job openings are at an all time high right now with 7.3 million available positions.  Provided that there are enough employees to reach maximum productivity, this is another great sign for the job market, and should continue to cultivate vigorous expansion.
