Survey Finds Employment Growth Rebounds ...

Employment growth rebounded in the second quarter of 2007 from the first quarter, according to the National Association for Business Economics' industry survey of its members. The report's net rising index for employment was 18 for the second quarter, up from 11 in the first quarter. Thirty-two percent of survey respondents reported employment growth in the second quarter, while 14% reported falling employment.

Forty-one percent said employment will increase in the next six months, compared to 29% in the first-quarter report.

Also, 42% reported that wages and salaries rose in the second quarter. In addition, 40% reported skilled labor shortages.

"The July NABE industry survey showed a pickup in business activity, profit margins, hiring and capital spending compared to the first quarter," said Ken Simonson, chief economist of Associated General Contractors of America. "Expectations also brightened for the next few quarters for the economy as a whole and for employment and capital spending, especially on structures."

The NABE survey included responses from 109 of the organization's members.
