Job Shock Moving Beyond the COVID-19 Employment Meltdown to a New Skilled Talent Decade

by Edward E. Gordon & Elaine H. Gordon “Job Shock: Moving Beyond the COVID-19 Employment Meltdown to a New Skilled Talent Decade” is an employment “red alert” for all Americans especially parents, students and employers of all sizes who face an escalating employment crisis over the next decade. “Job Shock” focuses on the impact of COVID-19 and the consequences of a skills-jobs mismatch from 2020 to 2030.

This has become the new normal for employment whether it is in an office, production facility, hospital, law firm or service business. The demand for talent and the supply of workers with the desired skills are out of balance all over the world. The populations of Japan, South Korea, and many European nations are in decline.
