Fewer people are working standard jobs, especially men. Inflation has stayed high, even as the Federal Reserve tries to bring it down. These are some of the trends Tatiana Bailey discussed with Colorado Matters to help us understand what the economy means for our lives. She also talked about one reason you may struggle to get a job, even in this market that favors workers.

Bailey runs a consultancy in Colorado Springs called Data-Driven Economic Strategies. She used to head the Economic Forum at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs.
