Job openings in June hit a 13-year high

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in its Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, said 4.67 million jobs were vacant in June, up 2.1 percent from May’s 4.58 million. The report also said hiring rose in June to 4.83 million from 4.74 million in May, but the hiring rate hasn’t grown as rapidly as the job vacancy rate.
