Nearly three years of a job-seekers ratio above 4-to-1

The ratio of unemployed workers to job openings was 4.2-to-1 in November, a slight improvement from the revised October ratio of 4.3-to-1. While the job-seekers ratio has slowly improved since peaking at 6.9-to-1 in the summer of 2009, it has now been above 4-to-1 for two years and 11 months.
