US Employment Increased by 2 Million New Jobs in 2017

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The only thing hotter than the stock market in the U.S. right now may be the job market. Two million jobs were added by the U.S. economy in 2017, making it the 87th consecutive month of job gains. This is the longest streak we have on record. According to figures released by the Labor Department, the U.S. job market increased by 148,000, in December 2017. The 17 year low in unemployment remained the same at 4.1 percent. Wages have seen an increase of 2.5 percent compared to last year. With U.S. job market opportunities in abundance, consider contacting USAFIS for help in the immigration process. Moving to the U.S. in 2018 may be a good financial choice for you and your family.

Michael Arone, State Street Global Advisors chief investment strategist, asked the question, “The real mystery is why hasn’t wage growth really picked up? That continues to be the challenge for this job market.” The trend of job openings decreasing is expected when there has been such a lengthy economic expansion. With unemployment being at historic lows, we expect job gains eventually to slow down. Even yet, various business sectors in the economy continued to add U.S. jobs last year. Manufacturing added close to 200,000 jobs last year, construction added around 210,000 jobs, the restaurant business added 250,000 people, and healthcare added over 300,000 jobs. USAFIS stands by to help you find your dream job in America.

With so many U.S. job opportunities available, 54% of small businesses are challenged with few or unqualified job applicants. If the trend continues, industries will be forced to increase wages and complete for employees. The U.S. job markets in the best parts of the country are seeing robust wage growth. These statistics are proof that now is an excellent time to consider moving to America for job opportunities. USAFIS is a privately owned company that can help you with the U.S. immigration process.
