The national unemployment rate is under 5 percent and in some states, such as Nebraska, it’s hovering around 2 percent. These days it seems you can’t go anyplace without seeing stores, offices, bars, restaurants – you name it – plastered with help wanted signs.

So where have all the workers gone?  Our guest on this Bizgnus Podcast is Ken Gronbach, a demographer and a futurist, who says he may know where the vanished American worker is really hiding.

“Our demography is not favoring us in the labor market just yet,” says Mr. Gronbach. “But we will have the best labor market in our history very soon.”

Mr. Gronbach is president of KGC Direct LLC, based in Bonita Springs, Florida, and is the author of the current book, “Upside: Profiting from the Profound Demographic Shifts Ahead,“ (Amacom, April 2017).  He is also the author of the bestselling book, “The Age Curve: How To Profit from the Coming Demographic Storm.”
