Each day, American businesses are firing on all cylinders to create jobs and drive America’s economic growth. Just last month, our private sector added jobs for the 53rd straight month, the longest streak on record. In total, American businesses have added 9.9 million jobs since early 2010. Last week, we saw another sign of progress, as the number of available jobs rose to the highest level in more than 13 years.
American business owners advertised 4.67 million jobs in June, the highest number of openings since February 2001 — a clear signal that the economy is strengthening.
