Market experts on July jobs report: ‘The economy is great, leave it alone’
Former White House National Economic Council chief economist Joseph LaVorgna and CFRA Chief investment strategist Sam Stovall weigh in on the July jobs report and inflation.
The number of job postings in the U.S. and Canada requiring potential employees to be vaccinated for the coronavirus has skyrocketed since the beginning of the year.

New data from Ladders, Inc. reveals this exponential growth, with a surge of more than 5,000% in job posts listing vaccination requirements since January 2021.
To reach these conclusions, researchers at the New York City-based career news company completed a "comprehensive review of all 3.8 million high-paying career job postings in the US & Canada over the past two years."
"The fact that any job postings mention a vaccine mandate is astounding. Employment requirements and preconditions are normally included in employee handbooks, not on job listings. Plus, we know that not every employer mandating vaccination includes that in the job description. So this is truly just the tip of the iceberg. It’s the beginning of a massive trend," Ladders, Inc. CEO Marc Cenedella said in a news release provided to FOX Business. "I expect this exponential growth will continue throughout the fall and winter, especially after vaccines receive full FDA approval."
The report's August data was based on the first 10 days of the month.
Before November 2020 – when vaccines were made available – only 54 job openings required a vaccination in a typical month, with most referencing influenza.
