The tightening of the labor market isn’t showing any signs of letting up. Just yesterday, the Department of Labor released unemployment enrollment numbers showing the lowest number of people collecting unemployment benefits at the end of 2017 in 44 years. At the end of last year, DOL recorded 1.87 million collecting unemployment insurance, the lowest since December, 1973 during the Nixon administration. Last week, U-Haul announced its annual ranking of “Growth States” with Texas topping the nation, followed by Florida, Arkansas, South Carolina and Tennessee completing the top 5. The U-Haul Growth States report measures one-way truck rentals to determine those states to which more Americans are moving. California, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Massachusetts were the biggest net-loss states.
