The number of U.S. job openings rose last month to the highest level since January 2001, the Labor Department said Tuesday.
Job openings, a gauge of labor demand, rose to 4.8 million in August, up from 4.6 million in July, while the quit and layoff figures were little at 2.5 million and 4.4 million, respectively, according to the monthly Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey.
At 1.8 percent, the quits rate has held steady for seven consecutive months. That rate measures the number of people who leave their jobs voluntarily and is an indication of how confident employees are that they can find a better job elsewhere.
