U.S. manufacturing and service-sector employers’ hiring plans for March are improved compared with the same month a year ago, according to a report on leading indicators of national employment released Friday, March 5, by the Society for Human Resource Management.
A survey for the report found that 45.8 percent of manufacturing firms plan to add staff in March while 12.1 percent plan cuts—for a net increase of 33.7 percent. This compares with a net decrease of 19.6 percent in March 2009.
