Workforce: A Throttle on American Growth
Littler’s Workplace Policy Institute, the government affairs arm of Littler, and the National Association of State Chambers collaborated on this 2022 report, Workforce: A Throttle on American Growth, to address workforce challenges in the U.S.
The report arrives at a crucial moment, with nearly two job openings per available worker, a soaring employment cost index for U.S. businesses, and persistently high employee quit rates—not to
mention widening skills gaps and dwindling population growth.
As a 50-state scan of business efforts to address the national worker shortage, the report provides a comprehensive analysis of how state chambers are responding to these challenges through programming and advocacy work at the state level, as well as recommended federal-level policy reforms.
It also details the key factors contributing to the national employment picture, including the quantity of American workers, the quality as measured by relevant skills, needed reforms to immigration policy, and the suitability of current education and training models.NASC-Report-8.30.22-Final-with-all-edits
