The numbers: The number of job openings nationwide fell in August for the third straight month and hit a one-and-a-half-year low, coinciding with a decline in hiring that’s taken place against the backdrop of a slowing U.S. economy.

Job openings slipped to 7.05 million in August from 7.17 million in the prior month.

Although the number of jobs openings still easily exceeds the 5.8 million Americans officially classified as unemployed, they’ve declined almost 8% since the start of the year.

“If this trend continues, we’ll dip below 7 million soon,” said Nick Bunker, an economist at Indeed Hiring Lab.

5. He ignores everyone who doesn't agree with him.

Alabama unemployment numbers are lowest ever...

And lowest of all the southern states.

I know that this is June, but the trend continues.

6. He's a typical liberal

If you don't agree with what they say, and don't say what they agree with, you must be silenced.
