Northwest Now-Help Wanted: Workforce Development in Washington State
Help Wanted: The Workforce Development Effort
A recent study by the Washington Roundtable reports that there are tens of thousands of open, but unfilled jobs here in Washington state. Employers desperately want to hire. The difficulty is finding workers with the right knowledge and skills. The so-called "skills gap" has the potential of costing the state's economy billions of dollars as employers look elsewhere to obtain workers qualified in science, technology, engineering and math. Northwest Now looks at the efforts being made to develop people ready for the modern workforce by institutions like Bates Technical College and public/private workforce development entities like Workforce Central and NFIB.
