There are more jobs than people out of work, something the U.S. has never experienced before

There are 6.7 million job openings and just 6.4 million available workers to fill them, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. April marked the second month in a row that there were more vacancies than available hires, a phenomenon that had not happened prior to 2018. Despite the mismatch, sizeble wage gains remain elusive, with average hourly earnings up just 2.7 percent over the past year.
