Report: Wichita, Kan., manufacturing skills gap among largest in US

from The Wichita Eagle

A new report identifies Wichita, Kan., as having one of the largest manufacturing skills gaps in the nation. The business consulting firm Boston Consulting Group, which recently released its report, examined the question of whether the country suffers from a shortage of high-skills workers. Many manufacturers complain that they want to hire, but they can't find enough workers with the right skills for the jobs they have open — that's the story line supported anecdotally. The authors conclude that, for the most part today, the skills gap is a myth, more a function of companies not willing to adequately pay qualified workers or train unqualified ones than not being able to find workers — a conclusion many manufacturers and government officials might dispute. more
