It is a major part of the economy of any country. Labour markets arise in order to meet the supply and demand of employers and employees. There are multiple factors which affect the marketplace like unemployment, salary structures, retirement age, etc.

Labour markets used to be bounded geographically. However, with the internet, the concept of a Global Job Market is slowly becoming a reality.
