“Job openings in the US rose by 518,000 to 5.889 million in June, from the 5.371 million in May, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said Monday in its Job Openings and Labor Turnover Summary (JOLTS).
Consensus economists had expected job openings to decline to 5.3 million.
The percentage of layoffs and discharges in June held steady at 1.4% to match May’s rate. Meanwhile, the quits rate rose to 1.9% in June, rising further from the April low of 1.3%, but coming in well below the recent high of 2.9% in August 2018. A higher quits rate typically corresponds to greater confidence in regaining another job in the labor market.”
