U.S. job openings at small companies reached a 45-year high in August. A record number of the businesses said they could not find skilled workers to fill all their open positions. The lack of qualified workers was mostly in the construction, wholesale trade, and manufacturing sectors. Dante DeAntonio, a Moody’s Analytics economist, said, “…the increasing tightness in the labor market is spurring more workers to re-enter the workforce as well as leave their jobs in search of better opportunities.” There were 46,000 vacancies in the finance and insurance field in July, and 32,000 in nondurable goods manufacturing. The manufacturing industry overall rose from 3.6 percent in June to 3.8 percent in July. With the thousands of U.S. job opportunities available, this is the time to move to the United States.
