U.S. job openings were little changed in June at elevated levels, adding to signs that the labor market remains generally healthy.

There were 7.35 million positions waiting to be filled, compared with an upwardly revised 7.38 million in May, according to the Labor Department’s Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, or JOLTS, released Tuesday. The quits rate held at 2.3%, the highest level in more than a decade and a sign workers remain confident about their ability to find a job in a robust environment for employment. The quits rate has been unchanged since June 2018.
