Topic Job Mobility

The ability to find a job and transition between jobs measures the dynamism of the U.S. labor market. When the labor market is tight and workers are mobile, they are able to find a job that best suits their skills and offers fair rewards. Equitable Growth follows determinants of job mobility to understand how dynamic the labor market is in the U.S. economy.
