JOLTS – June 2015

Jobs openings decreased in June to 5.249 million from 5.357 million in May.

The number of job openings (yellow) are up 11% year-over-year compared to June 2014.

Quits are up 11% year-over-year. These are voluntary separations. (see light blue columns at bottom of graph for trend for “quits”).

This is another solid report. It is a good sign that job openings are over 5 million – just off the all time high set last month – and that quits are increasing solidly year-over-year.
