As we return from the Labor Day weekend, it’s a good time to reflect upon and consider what it means to be a part of “the American workforce.”
When you think of that phrase, what comes to mind? White collar Americans pushing themselves to the top of the corporate ladder? Blue collar Americans who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty and do the job right?
In reality, we are a nation of diverse professionals with a wide variety of skills and passions.
Forbes recently put together a video that helps tell this story by the numbers, identifying stats breaking down:
- The five sectors the majority of Americans work in.
- Weekly hours worked.
- Jobs with the slimmest gender pay gap.
- The number of Americans working from home.
It’s a quick and informative video, and I hope you’ll check it out!
