Don't blame a 'skills gap' for lack of hiring in manufacturing

from FiveThirtyEight

U.S. factories are hiring again. Or they're trying to, anyway. Manufacturers posted 379,000 job openings in July, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. That's up more than 280 percent — close to quadruple — since the recession ended more than seven years ago.

Hiring is up just 36 percent since the end of the recession and has been pretty much flat over the past year. Tens of thousands of manufacturing jobs are going unfilled. more
