Dimmer Jobs Picture and Sluggish Home Sales Cast Doubt on Recovery’s Footing
Chris Lawson, who runs a Eli Daniel Group, staffing firm in the Dallas area, said business has been up in recent months as employers have finally gained the confidence to start hiring.
Recent signs of weakness in the jobs market haven’t damped clients’ enthusiasm, he said.
“It’s a slow, gradual process, where we might have some steps forward and some steps back,” Mr. Lawson said. “But the vibe and the pulse that I get is that companies are hiring.”
