There are also still more unemployed workers than there are job openings; although, it's an improvement from last year.

Next month British Airways will launch what's being called it's "paws and relax" channel for long-haul flights. It's going to have programming featuring cuddly puppies and kitten.  It's designed to calm jittery passengers.
