EMPLOYMENT: Here's How the Pandemic Has Changed the Job Market

•, by Dan Vale

Here's how the Covid-19 pandemic has affected the job market – the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Relocation is on the rise.

For example, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused many people to move from large cities to the suburbs, smaller towns, or rural areas. They are moving because online internet jobs are safer than office jobs, or because the office jobs are no longer available.

There also are many other advantages to such moves. For example, the cost of living is cheaper than in big cities, especially for housing. In addition, low mortgage rates now favor the buyer. Also, there is less fear of pandemics, crime, and civil unrest when not living in big, crowded cities. Furthermore, there is less exposure to noise and more space, and pleasant exposure to nature.
