New Report: Job Expectations Rise

Americans expect a more worker friendly labor market, says Job Creators Network

Washington, D.C. (August 13, 2018)—A new report from the New York Federal Reserve reveals that Americans believe the jobs market will get even hotter over the next year, says Job Creators Network. The report shows that consumers believe the probability of losing a job has gone down, while finding a new job—if necessary—will become easier.

“This is great news for the American worker,” said Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO. “All Americans are feeling more optimistic about their job security because we now have a leader at the helm that is pursuing a pro-growth, pro-jobs agenda.”

This latest good economic news follows closely behind the announcement of strong GDP growth in the second quarter of 2018, as well as a poll that shows small business optimism is at an all-time high.

“However, while conditions are continuing to improve from a worker’s perspective, businesses are having a difficult time finding qualified job candidates. Thus, the Trump administration’s workforce development initiative and support for apprenticeship programs will be crucial going forward.”
