The Economy of Labor in the Capital Region: Trends and Predictions for a Shared Future
Dr. Robert Eyler, Professor of Economics at Sonoma State University and President of Economic Forensics and Analytics, Inc.

California employers face unique challenges in finding talent and growing their reach. Nelson recently published a report on workforce trends that provide data showing where some of these challenges lie.  For Sacramento, labor markets continue to expand, driven by the state and national economy trends and also rebuilding after the 2017 fires.

Dr. Robert Eyler will review key insights on today’s local and California labor markets, including the continued economic impacts of the 2017 wildfires on this region. He’ll then discuss what these insights mean for Sacramento’s economic future and for local businesses, detailing the interconnected relationships to the state, national and global economic picture as forecasts become gloomier toward 2020.  Robert’s rare ability to break down highly detailed economic concepts and make them engaging for a general audience yet informative for other subject matter experts always receives an excellent rating from NELSONtalks attendees.
