High US jobless rate amid abundant vacancies

A recent survey shows managers facing difficulties in finding skilled workforce to fill financial, manufacturing jobs.

    More than 16 million people are out of work in the US, but the number of job vacancies is actually at a 13-year high.

    According to a recent survey, 30 percent of hiring managers say they're having trouble filling financial positions, and 20 percent report it's difficult to find manufacturing personnel.
