Because of demographic trends, there is less than one person available in the workforce for every open job.

As you can see in this chart from the Department of Labor, demographic trends are working against you. But don't worry - once you learn how to make Irresistible Offers, it won't matter!

It doesn't matter if your competitors have enough people to fill their jobs. It only matters if you do.
