Workers playing musical chairs, says Stevenson

August 23, 2021 NPR

While employers are finding it difficult to find workers, economist Betsey Stevenson told NPR she is not concerned.

“There is just more churn than normal,” says Stevenson. “It’s like a giant game of musical chairs, and it’s taking everyone longer than usual to find a good seat for themselves.”

She says eventually workers will find themselves happier and more productive in better jobs.
