As we continue to live with the COVID-19 pandemic, our economy is heading downhill, echoing the 2008 recession derived from the housing crisis. However, this article provides some optimism for our economy. Flowerhire, a cannabis recruitment and staffing agency, has noticed more people are considering going into the “green space” now more than ever.
Flowerhire noted that marijuana establishments during the pandemic have slowed down hires for managers and C-suite employees. Companies are looking for individuals who have worked with start-ups, possess an entrepreneurial spirit, and can multi-task. However, it is important by the time the job market is in a better place to make sure vacant positions are filled with qualified candidates. More importantly, I hope companies are looking to diversify their companies by giving minorities the opportunity of becoming managers and C-level executives.
Moreover, it is likely there will be an increase in licenses distributed in jurisdictions that have already legalized marijuana. This will lead to an increase in the number of clients who need consulting on how to create a marijuana establishment. So now is the time to get informed about the cannabis industry, because it is an industry that is growing rapidly and the more you know, the more job opportunities you will have in the future.
Everything that is worth having does not come easy, so we must remain patient but ready for the upward trajectory of the marketplace tomorrow. In addition, it would be no surprise if more states start to legalize marijuana to help save their economy. Therefore, I ask you, can cannabis save our economy?
