Forbes - Economy's Tragic Mismatch - July 26, 2016
It is a very insightful article that points out that the lack of skilled labor is the major problem facing our future needs by businesses in the US. A focus of the article is placed by Mr. Karlgaard on welders and the shortage of skilled welders needed for the future. It is very important that the focus on skills training and the skills trades are receiving coverage and exposure at this level.
As all of you know, it is a real effort we have at AWS and the AWS Foundation to focus more resources and scholarships for welding training. Articles such as this substantiate that our focus is on target for industry needs in the US.
