Worker demand up 10% in September

Demand for workers among employers was 10.3 percent higher in September than in August and 3.3% above the September 2005 level, "continuing the moderate rise seen in August after the sharp drop in July as a direct result of the war's influence," Manpower Israel said Tuesday.

Demand for workers among employers was 10.3 percent higher in September than in August and 3.3% above the September 2005 level, "continuing the moderate rise seen in August after the sharp drop in July as a direct result of the war's influence," Manpower Israel said Tuesday. Nonetheless, "this figure still does not reflect a change in the trend," said Manpower CEO Dalia Narkiss, who added that "we must wait and see the picture of demand over the coming months which will indicate whether the economy is indeed returning to growth." Worker demand was 9.3% lower in the third quarter than in the second quarter and 7.2% beneath the third quarter of 2005.
