During the reference quarter (first quarter 2022), Arapahoe/Douglas Works! placed 1,994 people in employment. This was a nearly identical result from the prior quarter, and substantially down from the prior year. The average annual wage was also significantly higher (22%) than the one year earlier. This reflects the building scarcity in the labor market, which is driving up wages. This scarcity, with not enough workers available to fill too many open jobs, is expected to continue through the decade.
