  • Separations 5550 vs 5469 last month. +81
  • Quit rate unchanged at 2.3%.  3490 vs 3391 last month, +99
  • Layoffs and discharges rate came in at 1.1%.  1723 vs 1751 last month, -38
Although the job openings are not a record as first thought (there seems to have revised 2018 data and November is the high), the openings remain elevated indicative of a strong labor market.
