Burnison added that the current capital market uncertainty in Europe slows hiring in the U.S. and around the globe in general.  "Companies forecast demand for goods and services.  Obviously with the highest unemployment ever in Europe, it reduces consumer demand.  Lower demand makes CEOs less willing to invest in hiring as they are uncertain of a payback."
