Brexit Expected to Impact U.S. Labor Market

Last week the U.K. has voted to leave the European Union.

This has happened since the referendum:

  • U.S. Dollar (USD) has gotten stronger on the financial markets
  • British Pound (GBP) and the Euro (EUR) have lost in value relative to the U.S. currency

As a result the U.S. economy is expected to find it more difficult to export goods to the Euro zone and its growth might slow down.

Time will tell how hard this will hit the U.S. labor market.

CNN money has more.
