In his latest Labor Market column on ERE.net, Raghav Singh writes:
“The cover of Fortune from Oct. 1, 2001, showed a man, covered in dust, walking away from the rubble of the Twin Towers, with the headline ‘Up from the ashes.’ The picture could just as easily be representative of the labor market today.
“One can only hope that 2021 will be a time when the labor market will similarly emerge from the carnage of the previous year. Early signs augur for a better year (it could hardly be worse) for the labor market, but this is far from certain. However, the picture of the labor force that will be available is much clearer.”
