The balance of power in the U.S. job market is thought to be slowly shifting toward employees from employers.Instead of concentrating on finding jobs for those who want them, Express Employment is putting more effort into finding workers for companies that need them.This is all good news for the economy, according to Nariman Behravesh, the Massachusetts-based chief economist for IHS Inc. He said the U.S. had entered a "virtuous cycle," in which job gains were leading to increased household expenditure, encouraging employers to hire more workers.Like some of its customers, Dice feels the pinch from the tighter market: It added two recruiters in the last two months to help it fill 60 open positions, Durney said.The improving job market is helping the long-term unemployed, too. The number of Americans without a job for 27 weeks or more fell to 3.16 million in July, from 4.25 million a year earlier. The workforce has grown by 1.09 million workers so far this year, according to figures from the Labor Department.Express Employment had almost 90,000 job orders from employers in June, up from 62,000 a year earlier, Funk said.
