(CNN) — May data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows we’re still in a worker shortage.

The agency’s numbers show there were 9.2 million job openings in May, about the same as in April.

Meanwhile, employers only hired 5.9 million workers, leaving a large gap between labor supply and demand.

It comes as the number of people leaving jobs fell by nearly half a million. That includes people who were terminated both voluntarily and involuntarily.

The entertainment and recreation sector is one area where jobs became less available. Available openings there fell by 80,000.
