Overall, the available evidence does not support the idea that there are serious skill gaps or skill shortages US Flagin the US labour force. The prevailing situation in the US labour market, as in most developed economies, continues to be skill mismatches where the average worker and job candidate has more education than their current job requires. Accepting the premise of the argument and making schools more responsible for creating job skills at the college level would have considerable implications for students and their tuition-paying families that should be thought through very carefully.

  1. Personal experience doesn’t bear this out. There are financial companies in Chicago hiring people from outside of the COUNTRY even though there are hundreds of thousands of people out of work in Chicago.

    So, there would seem to be a skill gap. Can you explain this?
