RESOURCE: 6 Million Missing Jobs

“The economy continues to add jobs at a steady pace and the FederalReserve Board is considering its first interest rates hike since the beginning of the recession. But, new analysis
shows that the effects of the Great Recession still linger in the form of 6.4 million jobs that were not created,including 3 million college jobs. These missing jobs contribute to flat wages and slack labor markets. Today, the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce (Georgetown Center) released the report Six Million Missing Jobs: The Lingering Pain of the Great Recession, which finds that in order to recover these missing jobs by 2020, the economy needs to add 205,000 jobs per month”.
