The November 2021 Jobs Report + Recapping 2021 & Inflation Update
Discover where the job market is heading. Plus, we’ll explain how the supply chain squeeze will affect the holiday season and your career.
The October 2021 Jobs Report showed a rebound with 551,000 jobs added as the economy regained some of its former mojo. While unemployment continued to fall, a 6.2% increase in inflation year-over-year. Everything from gas to rental cars is far more expensive as companies try to meet consumer demand with supply.
These challenges no doubt persist into November as Americans ramp up for the holiday season. With jobs and the economy with Biden’s infrastructure plan atop many minds, it’s time to make sense of it all and recap the crazy 2021 that was.
