- Skills Mismatch
Jobs that require skills training are the backbone of the American economy. Those jobs include highly skilled, in-demand jobs in healthcare, medical technology, IT, software, trades like plumbing and electricity, and advanced manufacturing. But the lack of access to training - and the resulting skills mismatch hurts workers, businesses, and the economy.
A majority of jobs (52%) require skills training beyond high school, but not a four-year degree.
But too few workers can access the skills training and education needed to fill in-demand jobs.
