Jobs

After an upswing at the beginning of this year, the labor market is back in the doldrums. The latest report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics said the U.S. economy created just 114,000 jobs in September, and although the unemployment rate fell to 7.9 percent, the workforce remains shrunken. And even those gloomy numbers obscure the suffering of the long-term unemployed and the millions of workers who have dropped out of the labor force in the aftermath of the recession. Stay up-to-date on the state of the labor market with AEI’s economic experts, and find out their ideas for how to get America back to work.
