The demand for labor and the ability to fill vacancies remains high. A new report from OnlineU shows that job vacancies stood at more than 11.5 million in March 2022 compared with 6.2 million two years earlier (prior to the pandemic).

The accommodation and food services subsector, and the health care and social assistance subsectors have the highest job vacancy rates right now, at 9.9% and 9%, respectively. The Great Resignation has something to do with the high rates as employees are leaving their jobs at a rate of 3% in March 2022 versus 1.8% two years ago.
