NEW YORK—The Federal Reserve Bank of New York will hold a press briefing on the regional labor market on Wednesday, May 21 at 10 a.m.  At the briefing, New York Fed economists will provide an update on the jobs recovery in the region, and discuss how recent employment gains have been concentrated in lower and higher skilled sectors, while the share of workers in the middle-skilled jobs has continued to shrink.
