The Norwegian oil industry lacks labor;
A few years ago, back in 2015, thousands of workers in the Oil & Gas industry lost their jobs. Now it seems that the situation is turned upside down.
Unemployment is falling and the oil industry is struggling to find people. According to sources, the industry is looking abroad now.
In the oil county Rogaland, the arrows point upwards again. This year, unemployment is 3.5 percent. This is 26 percent fewer than at the same time last year, says Rogalands Avis.
Most economists agree that there is a shift in the labor market due to an unemployment rate of 2.5 to 3 percent. And Because of this, it will lead from a surplus of labor to a shortage of labor, said by senior adviser Truls Nordahl in Nav Rogaland to the newspaper.
