Low Unemployment Rate Creates Challenging Conditions
Post Date: 09/10/2018
Unemployment rates in manufacturing, construction and other skilled trades continue to drop across the country. Meanwhile, businesses are growing rapidly, making it difficult to fill open positions. In Texas, unemployment rates are even lower than the national average at 3.5%. Additionally, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 45% of employers cite a skills gap as the reason they have trouble filling roles while another survey conducted by Inc. Magazine reports that 62% of the Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Companies cite finding and retaining talent the primary obstacle to growth.
