BATTLING THE BRAIN DRAIN
The Island is suffering “a brain drain and a birth dearth,” Kevin Law, president of the Long Island Association, told the audience of about 100. During the 2000s, the Island lost nearly 129,000 residents between the ages of 25 and 44, and nearly 52,000 under age 10, according to LIA figures.Article from NewsDay / MAURA MCDERMOTT
“We need to be looking at investing in our downtowns to make them more attractive, to keep some of our young talent here,” Law said.
With reports of “The Brain Drain” on the rise, a community driven coworking space gives opportunities for young business owners and remote workers a place to grow their own career paths on Long Island. For future events please check out WorkSmart’s monthly calendar.
