Jobs and the Labor Force of Tomorrow : Migration, Training, Education Paperback / softback

Edited by Michael A. Pagano

Part of the The Urban Agenda series


The new volume in the Urban Agenda series addresses the challenges shaping the development of human capital in metropolitan regions.

The articles, products of the 2016 Urban Forum at the University of Illinois at Chicago, engage with the overarching idea that a dynamic metropolitan economy needs a diverse, trained, and available workforce that can adapt to the needs of commerce, industry, government, and the service sector.

Authors explore provocative issues like the jobless recovery, migration and immigration, K-12 education preparedness, the urban-oriented gig economy, postsecondary workforce training, and the recruitment and professional development of millennials. Contributors: Xochitl Bada, John Bragelman, Laura Dresser, Rudy Faust, Beth Gutelius, Brad Harrington, Gregory V.

Larnell, Twyla T. Blackmond Larnell, and Nik Theodore.
