On Labor Day, it is only appropriate that we focus our attention on “labor.” As reported last Friday, the unemployment rate experienced no change from July to August and remained at 9.1%. Thus, as summer nears its end, the issue of job creation is only getting hotter. A summary of the Employment Situation can be found on the website for the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Below is an interesting look at Labor Day By The Numbers in an infographic from Credit Donkey.
Some Interesting Stats from the Infographic:
- Approximately 7.6 million people work more than one job. That is roughly 5% of the U.S. workforce.
- Network Systems and Data Communication Analysis jobs are expected to be the fastest growing jobs through 2016.
- An estimated 3.5 million workers commute 90+ minutes each day
