More housekeeping managers, cleaning and janitorial workers are finding new jobs and expanding their roles as the economy recovers, according to a new survey by CareerBuilder and JobSearch.com.
The job postings are a result of a new government-mandated National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) survey released on Tuesday, which found that Americans are more interested in jobs that pay well than in ones that don’t.
More than a third of respondents said they would consider a job with an hourly wage above $10 per hour if they could find a new one that paid at least $10 an hour, up from 28 percent last year.
More than half said they are more likely to take a pay cut if they were offered a better position.
Some of the most popular openings in the job market include janitor and housekeeping assistants, who make $10.50 an hour and up to $16 an hour for housekeeping and $19 an hour or more for housekeepers and cleaning.
The NLRB survey found that of the more than 8,000 job openings nationwide in 2016, nearly 4,000 were for house and cleaning and less than 3,000 for other housekeeping duties.
The survey also found that a large share of people who responded to the survey said they were seeking a higher-paying job, and more than half of those said they expected to move up in their career after they find a better job.
The jobs for housekeeper and cleaning were the most sought after by Americans in 2016 by a wide margin.
They were followed by housekeeping technicians, housekeeping associates, housekeepers, housekeeper assistants, housekeeps and housekeepers in the housekeeping industry.
