Eight years ago, with the United States still reeling from the effects of the great recession, new unemployment claims hit a 28-year high of 660,000. Today, Goldman Sachs’ analyst Spencer Hill believes the number of new jobless claims could reach the lowest level seen since 1969 as new claims have already dropped to historic lows in 27 states.
The current economic strength of the U.S. economy also means there’s strong demand for staffing services as companies across the country struggle to find technical talent in a tight labor market. The ASA staffing index, a four-week moving average that tracks demand for contract staffing services, increased 0.7 percent to a rounded value of 101 representing a 3.6 percent increase in the year-to-year average.
