The December Job Opening and Labor Turnover (JOLTS) Survey, released today, showed businesses continue to struggle to find workers and fill jobs after President Biden’s economic policies discouraged Americans from reconnecting to work.


The report showed that for every 10 unemployed workers there are over 17 job openings – the highest ratio of openings to unemployed workers ever.


At a total of 10.9 million openings, job openings have remained at over 10 million for seven straight months under President Biden.
