For the past several weeks, many economists have made their own predictions, believing that the unemployment rate will continue to be at a rate of 6 percent or more for the next four years, up until 2016. Many of the staff agencies made admission to the fact that at this point, it has become very difficult for the job market to grow and expand. There have been a few predictions made in which improvements are expected to be made within the next four years but those improvements will likely be very slow. In the meantime, there are some jobs available but it ultimately depends on the type of job people are looking to obtain.
The owner of the A Hire Authority firm, Miriam Berger, pointed out that plenty of jobs are available in different fields and that one problem is many people are not looking for those particular types of jobs. Berger is a firm believer that the labor market outlook is going to get better with time but even she has admitted that it is going to be a lengthy process. She feels that the unemployment numbers will continue to be high for quite a few years simply because that is what tends to occur during a recovery process, especially after such a crippling recession that destroyed the economy in the United States.
A managing partner for the Gray Hair Management, Scott Kane, has even stated that he believes the economy could improve but knows that it is going to take some time. He said that there are actually tons of jobs available but the main problem is there are so many people looking for jobs, which may make it seem like there are fewer jobs available, even if an abundance of jobs are actually available. There are just so many people out of work right now and that takes over the amount of jobs available, leading to higher unemployment rates and what seems to be slow job growth. In general, when people find out about jobs being made available, that is when they tend to look for the work that they want and need.
The key to improving unemployment rates is to create more jobs and make them readily available. The recession, which began in 2007 and ended in 2009, was definitely a rough patch for the United States. This is something that many generations of Americans had not dealt with for quite a while. Many believe that the economy is getting better but also realize that there is still a lot of growth that needs to take place.
