"It would seem as employers add roughly 200,000 jobs to the economy each month, that they're now tapping into populations that might not have been their first go to for a job candidate than say a year ago", Barrera said.
The low unemployment rate means that the still-depressed levels of participation in the work force are hard to chalk up to a shortage of jobs.
