Since the Great Recession of 2008, the job market and unemployment remains a sensitive issue for politicians, newscasters and the general public at large. We've fought long and hard to pull ourselves out of the bad economy and reverse high unemployment rates, and today the rates are sinking toward 5 percent, a low we haven't reached since April 2008 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The White House is confident that we'll see 5 percent unemployment by the end of the year and with the hiring surges around the country that prediction may in fact come to fruition.

Abundant employment
As the rate of United States citizens finding jobs inches down toward the lowest it's been in more than seven years more companies are choosing to hire employees in response to burgeoning markets. These jobs range from warehouse work to retail positions and even jobs within the U.S. government.
The enterprise conglomerate Amazon recently released a statement detailing the need for 6000 more employees in various distribution centers across the country SupplyChain247 reported. The company usually hires part-time workers for the holiday season to fulfill the influx of orders that require immediate attention and will likely do the same later this year even with this new bout of hires. The Swedish-based enterprise currently has 360 stores in the U.S. but has big plans to open 60 more by the end of the year. Of the 60 one is a 65000-square-foot superstore in Manhattan that just opened in late May. The number of employees will vary between locations though the added stores will undoubtedly lead to more delivery drivers and management staff.

Businesses are not the only organizations needing extra hands on deck. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency recently announced that it will hire about 1000 more employees in various distribution centers across the country reported Syracuse.com. There are recent openings due to retirements and other departures but we'll soon see more gaps in protection that need to be filled. There are a series of specific requirements that applicants must fulfill in order to be considered.

How will the supply chain be affected?
Because these industries are opening their doors to more employees the economy is bound to experience a boost as a result. With more people moving to new locations and purchasing homes,  cars,  appliances, and new clothes it's not so far-fetched to imagine more money flowing in and out of the economy. the supply chain will also experience a surge as a result. These companies will need to manufacture more products have them shipped by more people and there will be an increase in back end employees. As with any plump to the job market however the true outcome will only be sure with long-term results.

Whatever the numbers may turn out to be at the end of this year or the end of this decade more jobs for the public in diverse industries is a good sign for unemployment. These jobs also offer extended career plans with opportunities to move up should the employee be ambitious enough to go for it. At the end of the day however these are the starts of new careers with the hope of a better tomorrow for these individuals and their families. Hopefully this is a start of an extended trend that keep people employed for a long time.
