Call to the Floor: Manpower

Thursday, 31 May 2012 | 5:14 PM ET

The state of employment was again called into question on Thursday after the latest data showed private companies added fewer jobs than expected.

According to ADP, businesses added 133,000 workers to payrolls; economists had expected the ADP report to show growth of 154,000 new employees.

It seems concerns about an economic slowdown and potential recession in Europe have penetrated every corner of the global economy – including the US job market.

What are the implication for job seekers both here and around the world?

Find out from Jeffrey Joerres, CEO of Manpower Group, a staffing firm with offices in 80 countries.
