There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Title :
  Navigating the U.S. Labor Market: Trends and Prospects for Workers
Release Date :
Abstract :

This report outlines the organization of the labor market, describes underlying patterns of earnings and employment, and, in the final section, describes implications for future research.  By understanding the context in which workers operate, government managers, policymakers, and practitioners will be better prepared to design effective programs to increase worker employability and skills.  This report reviews three salient trends in the labor market: 1) Profile of Work and Workers; 2) The New Occupational Hierarchy and Changing Skill Requirements; and 3) Work, Workers and Inequality.
