#104 - Where did all the workers go?

22 mins | Nov 29, 2021

Today's episode from 29th November 2021. First this Monday: Millions in the US have left the labour force since the start of the pandemic but where did they go? We explore the reasons behind the "Big Quit" and ask what it means for global recovery. Then later, sometimes less is more. We discover how come companies are streamlining their offerings to combat supply chain issues and climate change. Labour shortages are spreading in many countries. Are they a result of reduced migration? Early retirement? And will they last? Delphine Strauss explores for The Financial Times. Pressures such as supply chain problems and post-pandemic labour shortages have combined to remind companies that sometimes having less choice is better. For The Financial Times, self-proclaimed indecisive shopper, Andrew Hill, uses compelling research on the 'psychology of choice' to argue that companies must streamline customers' choices for increased efficiency and sustainability. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
