There were 1.925 million employed men, compared with 1.921 million in April and 1.717 million employed women, compared with 1.718 million in April.

 

The statistics bureau also reported that the number of those employed full-time (35 hours a week or more) was 5.95 higher than in April (136,000 more employees), while the number of part-time employees (less than 35 weekly hours) declined by 3/5% compared with April (34,000 fewer employees).

I have dealt with people starting from my teen years whether it was a junior counselor position, volunteering in community centers for the elderly, working as a secretary and as a real estate agent. Dealing with the public is a learning experience and challenging. Someone once told me that a person can learn from every being they meet whether it be a child or a stranger they met for 2 minutes. This I hold true. I have met so many people and have learned a lot and keep learning. My father who ran his own business made it a point to provide good service to all his customers no matter how small the customer. I hope to offer quality, honesty, and result in happy customers whether they are sellers, buyers, or renters.
