What You Need to Know About Missouri’s Job Market

(MISSOURINET) –  Missouri has recovered nearly all of its jobs lost during the pandemic and a new report says the Show-Me State is one of the leaders in pandemic-related job recovery.

Ted Abernathy, of Economic Leadership LLC, completed the report for the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

He says in March, the country had the lowest number in nearly 50 years of new people filing for unemployment.

Abernathy encourages businesses looking for workers to find ways to retain the workers they have through treating them well, matching wages and investing in the recruitment of new graduates.

He says staying at a job is also about being a good place to live, including housing, local amenities and childcare options.
