Dallas, You’re Leaving $6.6 Billion On The Table—Here’s How!
Today, the U.S. has millions of job openings. Contrary to popular belief, there are millions of available jobs and each represents a life-changing opportunity for a job seeker. But it also represents money left on the table.
An unfilled job is an unclaimed paycheck and lost productivity for employers.
So the Glassdoor Economic Research team took a stab a calculating the value of all of these unfilled jobs. And you’ll be surprised how much it is. By combining Glassdoor salary estimates with real-time job listings, the total value of estimated base pay being left on the proverbial table is about $272.6 billion, based on the roughly 5.1 million online job listings on Glassdoor today.
Say it with me: $272.6 billion.
Broken down by metro, this means that New York City’s 266,884 open jobs are valued at about $16.8 billion. LA, you’re leaving $10.3 billion on the table with the 174,569 open jobs.
And Dallas—with your sprawling suburbs and once-glorious Cowboys— your 125,315 unfilled jobs are leaving $6.58 billion on the table. That’s on average about $52,513 forgone per job opening.
Raise your hand if you’d like to take home that five-figure paycheck?!
