Phil Boas: Pandemic Spurs Arizona Workers To Seek Higher-Quality Jobs

The Show regularly checks in with the Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

Pandemic-related challenges for Arizona’s economy remain — and may have ramped up because of the delta variant — but the recent recovery has been strong.

Some sectors, though, continue to struggle to find enough workers to fill open positions.

Sybil Francis of the Center for the Future of Arizona recently wrote in the Republic about what employers and business leaders should be doing to improve the situation. The Show spoke with Phil Boas, editorial page editor, to learn more about Francis's take.
