Why Idaho Jobs Are Struggling to Fill Spots from Resignations
Ever since the pandemic happened a few years ago, the job market has been hit and miss. Many people were originally let go because companies had to make cuts, and during that time the world learned how to work from home and make a living in other ways. This has played a factor in others being pickier in jobs and deciding to resign if they aren't happy with their position. It has made it tough for companies to hire people as well, as nobody wants to work away from home if they don't have to.
