As the recovery continues to build in the United States, so has the nation’s labor force.
With nearly 9 million jobs created and over 5 million jobs lost during the 2008 economic recession, millions of Americans are searching for work.
In 2016, the unemployment rate was 7.5 percent, the lowest rate since the Great Depression.
But the economy continues to add jobs as the economy grows, as shown by the employment data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics today.
According to the Bureau, the labor force participation rate, the share of the labor market that is either actively looking for work or looking for a job, has risen from 63.9 percent in March of 2015 to 74.3 percent in June of this year.
As a percentage of the workforce, the participation rate is up from 64.1 percent in December of 2015.
A total of 8.4 million people are employed in the U.S. labor force, including 5.1 million people who are in the laborforce but not looking for or actively looking.
According the Bureau’s latest Employment Situation Survey, which was released last week, there are now 1.6 million Americans in the work force.
The number of Americans in jobs has increased by over 200,000 in the last year alone, according to the Labor Department.
In addition, the number of people who have been laid off has increased to 1.3 million people, up from 1.1 of the year ago.
Over 3 million Americans have been unemployed since January 1, 2016.
The employment picture is good news for the economy, but it is not without its challenges.
A lack of skills for many Americans can be detrimental to the economy as it is hard to find a job that requires the skills needed for those jobs.
In a new report titled, Job Opportunities and Employment in the Economic Recovery, the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment at George Mason University points out that many Americans are struggling to find jobs, with the unemployment number increasing from 7.3 to 8.5 million, a rise of nearly 400,000 people since March of this last year.
The report states that while the job market is improving, more Americans are still working part time jobs.
The jobs that are available are mostly part-time, which is the lowest level since February of 2008.
This trend is a major reason why the unemployment rates are higher than they were a year ago, the report says.
According a study released by The Washington Post, nearly one-third of Americans work in low-wage, part-timing jobs, while more than half are working part- time because of an inability to find full-time work.
While it is difficult to pinpoint a specific cause for the increase in part- and full-timers, the researchers say that it is a “significant source of employment challenges.”
“The economy has benefited from a strong recovery in the past two years, but the recovery has been uneven and uneven,” said David Card, director of the Center for Labor Market and Economic Research at George Washington University.
“The challenge is to get the economy back to full employment.
In the absence of new jobs, many Americans will be unable to afford basic needs like food and shelter.”
A report released by Bankrate.com found that in the first quarter of 2017, 1 in 4 U. S. households had zero savings and fewer than one in four households had a credit card.
The authors of the report said that the problem is not just limited to the banking sector, with many households are also struggling with housing and other basic needs.
“Many households are still struggling to save for a rainy day, while many other Americans are facing a severe shortage of financial products and services,” the report reads.
“If this continues, we may see another recession in the near future.”
Many Americans have experienced the devastating economic downturn firsthand.
According “The Truth About the Great Recession” by Mark Zandi, a former director of Moody’s Analytics, an investment bank, more than 5 million Americans were unemployed during the economic downturn.
He also pointed out that the economic recovery has had negative repercussions for the lives of many Americans, including those in the banking industry.
While Zandi does not name names of individuals, he claims that many people lost their jobs because of the recession.
“They lost their homes and they lost their credit cards, which means that people were not able to get credit, they were unable to pay bills, and the economy suffered,” Zandi told Breitbart News.
“We’ve seen some of the worst job losses we’ve seen in history.”
Many of the jobs lost in the recession are not necessarily temporary jobs.
According Card, some of these job losses are not only temporary, but also temporary jobs that require a skill set that does not exist in the current economy.
For example, while there are many positions that require specific knowledge and experience, many of these positions require a degree and/or certificate that many cannot acquire because of their lack of training.
