Scarce Labor Is Likely to Squeeze U.S. Business Long After Covid

That means plenty more demand for workers such as Xochitl Anguiano, a Mexican immigrant who’s now a legal permanent resident and a hotel guest-room attendant in Las Vegas.


What’s more, Anguiano’s family is symbolic of how many of the children of immigrants are achieving higher levels of education, meaning they’re unlikely to step into their parents’ jobs.

As a member of Culinary Workers Union Local 226, Anguiano enjoyed benefits –- from health care and pension to legal assistance with immigration issues –- that helped her focus on family life and her children’s education. 

Now, one of her daughters has a degree in biology from the University of Nevada, and plans to take medical-school entrance exams in March, while another is finishing up a business degree at the same university.
