Idaho businesses are invited to a free webinar Tuesday, Dec. 6 to learn more about America’s current labor market.
Sam Wolkenhauer, Idaho Department of Labor economist for northern Idaho, will present the topic. Participants will learn why help wanted signs in windows are so prevalent in America and what role demographics are playing in the future of work.
Prior to joining the department, Wolkenhauer earned degrees in mathematics and economics from Eastern Washington University. In addition to providing economic data and analysis to the citizens of northern Idaho, he manages several forecasting projects for the state, creating projections of Idaho’s labor market conditions and demographics.
