Wall Street Journal (10/08/15) Josh Zumbrun
Fifty-six percent of 64 business and academic economists polled believe the U.S. will reach a state of full employment within the first half of next year, according to a survey by the Wall Street Journal. Nearly one fifth of the surveyed economists think the U.S. labor market has already reached full employment. However, the typical wage growth that follows full employment may not happen quickly. Skilled workers will do well, but the wages and the salaries of the average worker will increase modestly over time.
