Hiring Intentions at U.S. Employers Improving, Manpower Says

The U.S. labor market outlook is improving, with more employers planning to boost payrolls at the start of 2011 and fewer expecting to cut headcounts compared with the same time this year, a private survey showed today.

Milwaukee-based Manpower Inc., the world’s second-largest provider of temporary workers, said today its employment gauge for January through March 2011 rose to 9 after adjusting for seasonal variations, the highest level in more than two years. The net employment outlook was up from a reading of 5 this quarter.
