A Changing Texas Labor Market
  • 1. If its not a recession, its still not fun.
    Downturn affects output, employment, tax revenues
  • 2. Economists still very divided on duration,
    turning point signals, and level of job growth in
  • 3. Continued transition to services, not products
    for value-added and employment opportunities.
  • 4. Productivity through technology implementation
    will transform many job sites and skill sets.
    Technology is changing products, creating jobs
    e.g. Burlington/Nano-Tex, Texas-in-a-Box

A Changing Texas Labor Market (continued)
  • 5. More jobs in small firms, greater use of
    leased and independent contract labor means fewer
    and shorter career ladders
  • 6. Higher overall workforce education levels
    encourage fewer internal career ladders, fewer
    growth options for unskilled when they get a job
    e.g. hire outside folks who dont need training
  • 7. Organizational structure moving from pyramid
    to flatter pyramid to hour glass, so fewer ports
    of entry for low skill workers
