Over the past decade, there’s been a quiet shift happening in the U.S. job market. A notable decrease in skilled trade workers inhibits growth in the manufacturing, construction and hospitality industries, as Millennials make their way into the market and Baby Boomers retire.
In that same decade, over 700,000 individuals have been granted refuge on U.S. soil. Displaced by war and persecution, these legal residents are eager to establish employment to provide for their families and rebuild.
The labor shortage problem is growing, but we believe the answer to it has also been growing in cities across the United States: the refugee workforce.
