What Does the Next 10 Years Hold for the

U.S. Workforce?

Michael Wolf

Division Chief for Occupational Employment Projections, U.S. Department of Labor,

Bureau of Labor Statistics

Employment in the U.S. is currently projected to grow over the decade from 153.5 million to 165.4 million jobs by 2030. Pandemic recovery and growth in healthcare-related occupations are expected to account for a large share of projected job growth. However, by 2030 all baby boomers will be at least 65 years old which contributes to a slower projected labor force growth rate and lower overall labor force participation rate than much of recent history. Attend this session and be among the first to hear the latest trends and findings from the national employment projections dataset produced by the U.S. Department of Labor. The Employment Projections program within USDOL’s Bureau of Labor Statistics annually updates information about the expected labor market conditions for the Nation as a whole covering 10 years in the future.

Industry Deep Drive: Preparing for

Manufacturing Employment Renaissance

There are concerted efforts underway to strengthen American manufacturing and innovation to create better-paying jobs and to bolster the nation’s economic and national security. For instance, the recently passed chips and science bill aims to increase domestic manufacturing of semiconductors including allocating billions of dollars to company incentives and for programs aimed at research and development and workforce development. However, manufacturers still face significant labor and supply chain challenges along with navigating the many technological changes and trends within the industry, dubbed Industry 4.0. This session explores key manufacturing trends that will continue to impact the employment outlook within this industry for years to come.
