America is facing a crisis in the workforce.To date there are almost 100 million Americans, nearly 1/3 of the U.S. population, on some sort of government assistance. Many are unable to find work. Yet, states report an abundance of jobs waiting for the right candidates. West Virginia alone stated that for every unemployed person there are THREE jobs available in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math, but no one qualified to fill them. In fact, according to recent surveys several skills were identified that many Americans workers simply do not have.
It is estimated that by 2020 there will be a global need of 38-40 million workers with college degrees and a 13% shortage. The U.S. currently ranks 12th out of 36 developed nations with college degrees, yet has the highest student loan debt of anywhere in the world.
