The world’s population is about 7.2 billion people, and about 70% of those people work. This means that there are about 5 billion jobs in the world, which is a huge number. This number is likely to go up as more young people start to work.
In America alone, there are 3.8 million jobs open. The number of people who are unemployed is steadily going down, but more people are leaving the job market.
Countries like China, Brazil, and India have the most people working. In the United States, this number is about 63%. The number of jobs in the private sector is going up, and the computer industry is in the lead. In some poor countries, people want to work for the government.
