Infographic: America's skills gap

This infographic illustrates the growing crisis for skilled labor.

America's Skills GapSome have suggested that the skills gap in America can partially be explained by the growing number of retiring trades people and the shrinking number of qualified applicants. America's viewpoint is also contributing to the skills gap. Young generations lack skills and acceptance of trade education, which has resulted in a decline of qualified workers nation wide.
