As industrial manufacturing makes a resurgence after years of lesser growth, industry hiring in both the United States and United Kingdom is increasing.
Factory activity in the U.S. hit its fastest rate of growth since April 2011, according to Fox News. The Institute for Supply Management, which tracks purchasing managers throughout the industry, says its manufacturing index has risen half of a point since August and expanded well above recent years' levels. In addition, manufacturers added jobs in September at the fastest pace in more than a year, while new orders continued to grow across the economy as well.
The story was similar across the pond, as domestic and export demand was stronger than the third quarter of 2013 in the United Kingdom, according to Bloomberg. As a result, employment is expected to speed up in the next three months to help meet further demand.
Hiring outlooks in the country were brighter than they have been since 2007, according to the news source, though it has not yet reached its heights that were set before the international recession.
