7,200 vying for 600 unfilled jobs
The latest Job Vacancy Survey from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development shows that in north central Minnesota, there are 7,200 job seekers competing for only 600 unfilled jobs. This means that job seekers outnumber job openings by 12-to-1.
Six months ago, the ratio of job seekers to job openings in the region was still less than 4-1. Since then, job seekers have risen 30 percent; job openings have fallen 62 percent.
