Gallup’s “Good Jobs Employment” measure hit a six year high of 47.1% in July. The number of employees working more than 30 hours a week at the same job has increased. Whether they like it or not is a different issue, but “good” here means a job that isn’t part-time or self-employed. More people are getting more substantial work as unemployment is down to 5.1%. The job participation rate is up but only from 67.5% to 67.8%. In general, things are getting better. For those who want but don’t have good jobs or are unemployed, the improvement isn’t happening quickly enough, but the trends are in the right direction.
