(Bloomberg Politics) — Americans’ employment outlook has returned to pre-Great Recession levels, with the highest number of people expressing a positive outlook about the job market since November 2007.

Thirty-six percent of respondents said now is a “good time” to find a “quality job” in December, up six percentage points from last month, according to a Gallup survey released on Monday. While 61 percent of people believe it’s a bad time to find a job, those numbers have also declined, from 66 percent in November and 73 percent in December 2013.
