It Will Take More than Talk to Fix These Issues.

The country faces real issues related to the long-term economy woes and poor job prospects. Millennials and their children will face economic challenges and limited opportunities to prosper through high paying jobs. More than half of the jobs in the growth sectors pay $35K or less. Of the jobs projected to be newly created among top-growing healthcare-related occupations, 71 % will pay less than $30K. DaMar can help you plan your future career moves.

Today, 42 % of U.S. workers make less than $15 per hour. That needs to change. Middle-income jobs are going away and low-pay jobs are growing rapidly. Women (55%) and people of color (60%) are over represented in the jobs paying less than $15 per hour. About half of the U.S. workers ages 35 and older earn less than $15 per hour are. DaMar works to find the best talent and to find them the highest paying jobs possible.

Many job seekers will have to take bold action and move beyond their comfort zone. The job market is getting tighter and more competitive. Candidates need courage and self-confidence to succeed.

Candidates must become technologically savvy to qualify for better paying jobs, improve their quality of life, and share in the new economy equitably.
