Labor and Workforce

REQUEST DEMO

Regions seeking upgrades to their local economies must consider what a proposed change will do to their corresponding labor force. The inability to meet labor demands can capsize even the most ambitious public program.

Along with overall population and amount of available skilled workers, a productive workplace and/or economic environment enables more regional flexibility when it comes to potential policies. Benefits like comprehensive paid medical leave and a sufficient local educational system can entice migration into specific locations that then produce positive impacts on the entirety of a certain economy.

The REMI PI+ model has been used by researchers in the evaluation of minimum wage increases, military fort expansions and closures, changes in school funding, and the total impact of a state’s university system. Upgrading the services outside of an individual’s workplace can result in an improvement in that citizen’s total output and/or an improvement in the regional economy.

Labor agencies use REMI because of its expertise in producing extensive, descriptive studies showing the economic effects of labor and workforce policies.

REMI studies range from public school amendments to military impacts, from spending shifts to education initiatives.
