Economists offer suggestions to tackle Montana's looming severe workforce shortage

April 25, 2018View for printing

Over the next 10 years, Montana is expected to add about 4,500 workers a year but that's not enough to cover the 5,500 new jobs that are projected to be added every year.

Montana is facing a severe labor shortage as the population ages out of the workforce without enough workers to fill the vacancies they leave, much less fill the new jobs that are being created in the state.

The situation has significant implications for businesses, and that's why economists are increasing their calls for attention to the issue now, as well as offering solutions.
