Optimism rises in job market, but many still struggling
American’s outlook on the job market has improved but still has a long way to go.
Of those seeking a job in March, 19 percent said it is now a “good time” to find a quality job, which is up from 13 percent in February, according to a recent Gallup Poll. Though the outlook has improved slightly, there are still 78 percent who say it is a “bad time” to find a quality job.
“The increase in the percentage of Americans who say now is a good time to find a quality job to its highest level since September 2008 is consistent with many of Gallup's other behavioral economic measures of the economy,” the Gallup report said.
Gallup also reports that the uptick in optimism is likely caused by recent U.S. government reports that more than 200,000 jobs have been added and the unemployment held at 8.3 percent in February.
