CULVER CITY, Calif.
S, labor and the economy are in a dead heat, but the U.K. is leading the pack as it gains momentum in the global economic recovery, a new poll suggests.
The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) poll released Tuesday showed that the U., U.A.E. and Australia were all the most likely countries to see job gains in the next year.
The poll said that while the U-S.
economy expanded 2.4% in the 12 months through May, U.N. data showed a 2.9% drop in employment and a 1.3% increase in the unemployment rate.
Australia’s unemployment rate dropped by 4.4 percentage points to 5.9%, while the UK’s increased by 2.8 percentage points.
Britain has been pushing to close a job gap with Australia, which has seen a large number of people leave the country.
However, the U.-K.
has been slow to follow suit, the poll showed.
While the unemployment rates in the U, U-A.
Es. and U.
As. were not statistically different, the EIU said it does not expect a significant increase in job gains this year.
“It’s very likely that the next 12 months will be one of the hardest years of the recovery in a long time,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics.
He said that the ESU is not forecasting a major increase in payrolls this year, although he said the country’s labor market is expected to be “much stronger” in coming months.
Meanwhile, the UK has begun a three-month “soft landing” in the recovery, which will help lift the economy to the new normal of growth, according to the ESI.
During the past three months, the unemployment has fallen to its lowest level since February and the overall unemployment rate has fallen from 10.3 percent to 8.8 percent.
But there is no guarantee that the UK will get back to full employment in coming years, with many people still out of work, Zandi said.
Some economists say the UK could experience a recession in the fourth quarter of this year if there is another shock to the economy.
EIU also released a survey of the publics views on job creation.
It found that only 13% of respondents said they were confident that jobs were being created.
Those who believe there is a shortage of jobs were slightly more likely to say they would be worried about job security, while those who believed there is more of a shortage were less likely to be worried.
There was a similar trend in other areas of the economy, including housing and healthcare, with 30% of Americans saying there is not enough jobs to go around, while 18% said the same of healthcare.
And the EMIU said that it found that in many cases people in their early 20s were still more optimistic about the job market than older workers.
Despite a rebound in the economy that has created jobs, many Americans are worried about their retirement, with the number of Americans age 65 and older living in poverty having risen to an all-time high of 3.3 million.
In a sign of the slow pace of job creation, the number one job killer in the United States, a higher percentage of Americans are still not working.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the jobless rate for Americans age 16 to 24 rose to 5% in May.
That is a 14-point increase since February.
With so many people looking for work, there are fewer and fewer jobs available.
Still, the economy is still on track for a major recovery, Zanda said.
“The U.C.F.C.’s GDP in the second quarter is forecast to grow by about 2% this year and by 5.2% next year, so it looks like the recovery is on track,” he said.
