Recent research by Gallup shows that job creation is the best it's been in three years. The latest findings from the famous pollsters show that 30 percent of employees nationwide say their employers are hiring and only 18 percent are saying that their employers are firing. This is a major improvement from a year ago, when 25 percent were hiring and 23 percent firing.

Region by region, the West showed the most improvement in February, with the percentage of employees there who reported hiring at their places of work rising to 29 percent from 26 percent, while the percentage of employees who said their employers are letting workers go fell to 19 percent from 21 percent.
