Brookings Mountain West presents “The Shortage of Skilled Workers: Quality Jobs for a Trained Workforce” a talk by Jonathan Rothwell, fellow, Metropolitan Policy Program. 

The Great Recession of 2008 temporarily solved employer workforce needs by lowering demand and increasing the number of unemployed skilled workers. After a few years of modest but sustained economic growth, the labor market for skilled workers has once again tightened and positions are going unfilled. This research helps national and regional leaders understand which skills are in short supply and offers policy advice on how to redress the imbalance between supply and demand. In addition to offering a national perspective on this topic, the lecture will examine the situation in Nevada.
