On this week’s episode Theresa Cardinal Brown fills in for Hanadi Jordan who is out this week. We dive into the state of the American workforce and how immigration plays into it with Ben Gitis, the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Associate Director for economic and workforce policy. We talk about a recent Morning Consult survey for BPC on high-skilled immigration, the latest jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the state of employment, unemployment and how we define labor shortages. We also talk about immigrants in the labor force, high-skilled and lesser skilled immigration, and what may be keeping immigrants and Americans from getting back into the labor market post-COVID.
