Which US Cities are Most Attractive to International Job Seekers?
Over the past year, international migration to the US has become a major controversy in political discourse and — correspondingly — the news cycle. Sometimes lost in all the heated discussion is a simple truth: That international migration to the US is by no means homogenous. Migrants from all over the world with varying career interests search for work in different areas of the US — and therefore impact US metro areas in disparate ways. If policymakers and employers are to truly understand...

The strong national economic recovery in recent years hides big differences across local labor markets. Today unemployment ranges from less than three percent in some states to more than six percent in others.

The gap between rich and poor metros is growing, affecting our politics: The 2016 presidential election was more geographically polarized than previous elections, and...

Technology Is Killing The Art Of Communication In The Workplace
No longer do you need to talk to a person to make plans—you send a text. You don’t have to call to make a reservation—you click a button.
