The local weekly paper in my home town recently ran an article about the need for better Skilled Workers where I live.
- Finding skilled young workers is the biggest challenge expressed by managers of manufacturing companies around the county.
- Most mentioned by business managers were the academic deficiencies and youth culture of new workers who apply for jobs with their companies.
- “There are people searching for jobs here, but there seems to be a mismatch between the skills they have and those needed to perform the available jobs,”-Bethany Dentler, Director of the Economic Development Corp
I work on the skilled workforce issue nationwide through PMPA, but this hometown article reminded me that while the problem may be nationwide, the solution (better training and education) is always local.
