Monster Employment Index Gains 25% in January

The Monster Employment Index Europe increased in January by 25% from its year-ago level, the largest year-over-year increase of the current economic expansion (see chart above), and above the 22% gain in December.  There were especially strong annual gains for online job demand in Germany (+37%), Sweden (+32%), France (+23%) and the U.K.'s IT sector (+34%).

Real Estate was the only sector that increased in the December -> January period for the Monster Euro Index. That is surprising but may be indicative of persistent strength in Euro Employment, IMHO.

Didn't this happen in the 30s?
