College Educated Workers Moving to Las Vegas

UNLV’s Center for Business and Economic Research (CBER) has been taking an in-depth look at the scars left by the pandemic on our workforce for over a year. What initially caught our eye was that Nevada experienced the third-largest decrease in labor-force participation after the pandemic, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, behind only Maine and Maryland. We went from 20th in the nation for labor-force participation to 32nd, which we estimate is about 88,889 missing workers in Nevada and 57,474 missing workers in Clark County.”
