Job Openings Soared to 10.9 Million in July in Latest BLS Data

Washington, DC...The number of job openings increased to a series high of 10.9 million on the last business day of July, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Hires and total separations were little changed at 6.7 million and 5.8 million, respectively. Within separations, the quits rate was unchanged at 2.7 percent while the layoffs and discharges rate was little changed at 1.0 percent. This release includes estimates of the number and rate of job openings, hires, and separations for the total nonfarm sector, by industry, by four geographic regions, and by establishment size class.





Job Openings

On the last business day of July, the number and rate of job openings increased to series highs of 10.9
million (+749,000) and 6.9 percent, respectively. Job openings increased in several industries, with the
largest increases in health care and social assistance (+294,000); finance and insurance (+116,000); and
accommodation and food services (+115,000). The number of job openings increased in the Northeast,
South, and West regions. (See table 1.)

Hires

In July, the number and rate of hires were little changed at 6.7 million and 4.5 percent, respectively.
Hires decreased in retail trade (-277,000), durable goods manufacturing (-41,000), and educational
services (-23,000). The number of hires increased in state and local government education (+33,000) and in
federal government (+21,000). The number of hires was little changed in all four regions. (See table 2.)

Separations

Total separations includes quits, layoffs and discharges, and other separations. Quits are generally
voluntary separations initiated by the employee. Therefore, the quits rate can serve as a measure of
workers’ willingness or ability to leave jobs. Layoffs and discharges are involuntary separations initiated
by the employer. Other separations includes separations due to retirement, death, disability, and transfers
to other locations of the same firm.

In July, the number and rate of total separations were little changed at 5.8 million and 3.9 percent,
respectively. The total separations level decreased in transportation, warehousing, and utilities (-43,000)
and in federal government (-9,000). Total separations increased in the Northeast region. (See table 3.)

The number of quits was little changed in July at 4.0 million. The quits rate was unchanged at 2.7
percent. Quits increased in wholesale trade (+34,000) and in state and local government education
(+14,000). Quits decreased in transportation, warehousing, and utilities (-25,000) and in federal
government (-5,000). The number of quits was little changed in all four regions. (See table 4.)

In July, the number and rate of layoffs and discharges were little changed at 1.5 million and 1.0
percent, respectively. Layoffs and discharges increased in professional and business services
(+107,000). Layoffs and discharges were little changed in all four regions. (See table 5.)

The number of other separations was little changed in July at 350,000. Other separations decreased in
health care and social assistance (-16,000), information (-6,000), and real estate and rental and leasing
(-5,000). The other separations level decreased in the West region. (See table 6.)

Net Change in Employment

Large numbers of hires and separations occur every month throughout the business cycle. Net
employment change results from the relationship between hires and separations. When the number of
hires exceeds the number of separations, employment rises, even if the hires level is steady or declining.
Conversely, when the number of hires is less than the number of separations, employment declines, even
if the hires level is steady or rising.

Over the 12 months ending in July, hires totaled 72.6 million and separations totaled 65.6 million,
yielding a net employment gain of 7.0 million. These totals include workers who may have been hired
and separated more than once during the year.

Establishment Size Class

In July, the job openings rate increased in medium establishments with 50-249 employees and decreased
in large establishments with 5,000 or more employees. The hires rate decreased in large establishments
with 5,000 or more employees. The total separations rate decreased in large establishments with 5,000 or
more employees. The other separations rate decreased in large establishments with 250-999 employees
and 1,000-4,999 employees. For a more in-depth description of the JOLTS establishment size class
estimates, please visit www.bls.gov/jlt/sizeclassmethodology.htm.

The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey estimates for August 2021 are scheduled to be

    Amazing news for the US economy. Again - good to see sensible Democrat policies creating such a booming economy.

    It's pretty much impossible to bitch and moan about Biden on anything of substance.

Well, you must think it’s acceptable for someone to be a sexual prowler. He should be impeached for leaving any American behind in Afghanistan and blocking any rescue attempts. But like a lazy DemoRAT, as long as you get free handouts it’s all ok. Oops. Your free handouts ended this week. Awwwwwww!

Wow, 10.9m job openings at the end of July!! As long as Joe Biden is in office, it’ll stay this way. Ever wonder why his poll rating is 46%??? Surely most that voted for him are still unemployed and will continue the democratic way. You voted for this and now, “pay the price.” Normal people, we’re laughing our ass off at all you idiots….

          except that's the opposite of what this report says.

          I doubt we'll see self driving cars (or trucks) in my lifetime. (and I love my Tesla, so it's not about the tech.) It's purely about the legal and regulatory framework to allow for that. That's going to take another 20 years before truck drivers are out of work. Plenty of time for natural attrition.

        But Democrats think by raising minimum wage it will solve everything. The reality is everything else must go up. Food, mortgages, rent, insurance. They just aren’t grown up to realize it hurts everyone. And sadly, to buy a house in California you either need to be very wealthy or have 3 incomes. Um, hello…?!?! Biden, Newsome…Kamala, they don’t give a rats ass about you. Newsflash!

      Are you an idiot? There are job openings because the government has made it where no one wants to work because they make more sitting at home. It’s why fast foods restaurants are paying employees so much just to work there… because no one wants to work

        Well, that's simply not what the data says. Even in those states that cut back the social benefits the workers ahven't returned to fash food and other dead end job.

        The real reason one of Supply and Demand. Amazon, Uber, OnlyFans, etc have made it such that people can make more money, have benefits from day 1, more flexibility, not be dependant on 'tips', have unpredictable schedules, etc.

        Companies that are looking for a poorly educated workforce willing to work for minimum wage will probably go out of business. If I can work in an Air-Conditioned Amazon warehouse with a predicable shift and have health care, why would I would on a farm in the Central Valley? This is why WalMart is now paying for college for their staff. It's a great benefit, smarter staff, and loyalty.

        Sure they can. They simply don't want to work the minimum wage jobs you expect everyone else to. Just because their degree in underwater basket weaving isn't marketable at the moment doesn't mean there aren't plenty of jobs. Time for them to grow up and accept there are no entitlements in the labor market, get off their whiny asses, and go to work. Being out there doing something is half of being successful. Get on it!

          For the first time in 20 years we can say 'those were the last 11 to be killed by our enemy and our ambition to police the world"

        Or maybe they just aren't stupid enough enough to stick around when they're warned the hurricane or forest fire is coming. The warning went out to everyone in Afghanistan 17 months ago when Trump cut his deal with the Taliban.
