Job Market

The supply and demand for jobs. That is, the job market is the amount of job openings available compared to the workforce capable of taking them. A large number of job openings may indicate lack of demand for jobs (that is, there are not enough skilled workers to fill available positions), while the opposite may indicate few jobs relative to the labor force.
