The following is an excerpt from Gallup News.
- Near-record 71% of U.S. adults say it is a good time to find quality job
- Just 15% of U.S. workers think they will lose their jobs in next year
- If they lost job, 63% of U.S. workers think they would find an equally good job
With the U.S. unemployment rate steady at a historically low 3.6%, 71% of Americans say it is a good time to find a quality job, and those who are employed largely feel secure in their jobs.
Even if they were to lose their jobs, a solid majority of U.S. workers believe they would find a position that is equally as good.
Americans' latest positive assessments of the U.S. job market, from Gallup's April 1-19 poll, are just three percentage points shy of the 21-year high of 74% recorded last October.
The percentage of U.S. adults saying it is a good time to find a quality job has been steadily above 70% since last August, which is considerably higher than the 22% to 43% range found throughout the first year of the pandemic.
Recent ratings of the job market surpass the 68% of Americans who were optimistic about it in January 2020, before Covid-19 forced the closure of many businesses and the unemployment rate spiked.
