The hiring rate surged to a year-to-date high in June, according to the latest Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, or JOLTS report. The number of openings totaled 5.25 million, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said, below the forecast for 5.35 million. This print is still near the record high reached in May. The quits rate, which measures workers who voluntarily resign and is a key labor market measure for Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen, held steady at 1.9%.
