As looked at here recently, the "JOLTS" index showed job openings at their highest level since 2001.
And the Job Openings Rate is also now at its highest level since before the financial crisis.
The big question is when the Fed might start to look at hiking interest rates.
The Q3 figures had shown the economy expanding at a rip-snorting 5 percent annualised pace.
The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) meets on Tuesday to decide whether to leave interest rates on hold at 2.25 percent or cut them to 2 percent.
At the close yesterday markets were pricing a 62 percent chance of a cut, with implied yields on cash rate futures contracts for November 2015 plumbing new depths at below 1.7 percent.
However, the March interest rate decision very much hangs in the balance.
I will look at the likely path of Australian interest rates in 2015 in more detail tomorrow.
