Across the country, businesses are having a renewed interest in hiring strategies because of a complex environment and difficulty finding workers. As a result of current conditions, more employers are saying they're having a hard time filling positions, especially for lower-wage roles.
We're in a unique environment where job growth is stalled at least in the short-term, but the demand for labor is strong. When businesses have difficulty filling vacancies, this is a type of classic "tight job market." Granted, the reasons for this environment may be extenuating macroeconomic conditions, but the effect is the same: It's hard to hire the employees your business needs.
