Business Finance
Investigating buisness and labor trends

Question Description

Business and labor are interdependent. Laborers rely on the job opportunities provided by the growth of businesses, as well as the consumer goods and services that such companies provide. Business growth depends on a diverse, skilled labor force. Since business and labor are interdependent, a change in one will impact the other. Laborers need to be aware of changing business trends to prepare for labor force changes, and businesses must study ways to attract and retain skilled workers.

In this portfolio activity, you will examine current trends that impact business and labor practices. The portfolio is broken into four parts. Each part corresponds to a section of Unit 3 as well as a current events article.
