In the recent past, we have experienced shortages in specific occupations for short periods of time. Today, however, authorities in this area predict that for the next 10 to 20 years the United States will, except during serious economic downturns, face a severely tight labor market, especially for highly skilled and talented workers. The danger is that because we have not experienced this type of labor market since World War II, employers will not know how to respond until it is too late.
