According to Wallethub.com, the labor force participation rate is slightly above pre-pandemic levels. Why, then, do some employers still have difficulties filling positions, especially in New Mexico, which ranked 4th in the nation of states where employers are struggling the most in hiring? Scott Brocato talked about this with Wallethub analyst, Cassandra Happe.
