Job competition toughest since recession beganThe number of Job seekers has increased ever since the recession began.  There was a group of economists analyzing the job rates, and expecting a jobless recovery, putting a lot of pressure on our President, Barack Obama.  Plus the Congresssional Democrats to stimulate job creation.  About 6.3 million unemployed workers are competing on an average basis.  Desperate for a possible job opening, that’s been mostly of the department has been since tracking job openings nine years ago.  Also up to 1.7 workers when the recession began in December 2007.  In the rankings, the highest point after the 2001 recession was 2.8 workers per opening of July 2003, with our economy suffering through the jobless recuperation.  The Employers have cut the net total of 7.2 million jobs during the downturn.  The department’s Job Openings and Labor Turnover survey researched and found less than 2.4 million openings in August, also is recently the latest data available.  This could seem a lot more jobs than usual, but it has slowed down from 3.7 million a year ago and half in June 2007.                               ( By Christopher S.
