To the authors, How did you conclude that job polarization isn't a key contributor to labor market recovery? The first three charts seem to indicate that there is a labor market shift towards more cognitive non routine jobs or the jobs that provide services to those same people. Regarding occupational transitions, the job-finding rates further support the claim of job polarization being a key contributor. "If people were unable to find routine jobs, they’d be incentivized to retrain and search for work in nonroutine occupations." - People look for jobs utilizing the skill they already have, very few have the resources to retrain. Probably fewer have the necessary educational background and financial capability to quickly gain new skills. I don't think this article did a good job of disproving job polarization as a key contributor. The numbers used are lacking vital demographic data to support your claims.
