The latest Manpower Employment Outlook Survey suggests that hiring is healthy in the U.S. The survey, run by Manpower Inc., polled 16,000 employers. It reports that 23 percent of respondents will increase hiring in the first quarter of 2006, 10 percent will decrease levels, 61 percent won't change their plans and 6 percent are unsure of what they will do. The durable and non-durable goods manufacturing, wholesale/retail, finance/insurance/real estate, education and public administration sectors see minimal changes ahead. Softer hiring is likely in transportation/public utilizes and services, while mining will experience a more visible slowdown.
