National Skills Coalition has just released new factsheets showing that demand for middle-skill jobs is strong in all 50 states. The factsheets show the current and projected middle-skill jobs, as well as the middle-skills gap. You can view all the factsheets, arranged by state, here.
The most striking fact captured by these factsheets is the skills gap between the available and projected jobs and the skill levels of the current workforce. This furthers strengthens the need of developing and implementing effective career pathways within adult education programs and deepening the partnerships with postsecondary institutions and with area employers.
