Is there a labor shortage in Massachusetts?
With more senior executives looking to retire, the number of available workers is diminishing in Massachusetts. The Boston Herald suggests that Massachusetts currently faces a labor shortage of over 150,000 workers, most of which are in the skilled labor sector.
Why is the unemployment rate so high in Massachusetts?
Layoffs in the tech sector, economic recoil from the pandemic, and an unwillingness to return to lower-paying jobs have left Massachusetts trailing behind other states in terms of unemployment. However, companies that invested in programs like talent development and retention are reaping the benefits despite these external factors.
