This issue of Rocky Mountain Economist: Job Loss, Job Training and Labor Market Scarring

In this edition of the Rocky Mountain Economist, we highlight on-the-job training for workers in the United States and the Rocky Mountain region and document job losses across occupations that vary in their required amounts of on-the-job training during this public-health induced downturn. Lost skills and training can pose a risk to the recovery in the labor market over the longer-run.
