Survey of Adult Skills and the diversity of 36 million low-skilled Americans

The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development's Survey of Adult Skills points to the diversity of the 36 million low-skilled Americans.  This diversity spans age, race, national origin, and education levels.  1/3 of the population is under 35 years old.  More than half of these workers are Black or Hispanic.  People with learning disabilities are twice as likely to be considered low-skilled Americans.
