Title:America's forgotten middle-skill jobs: Education and training requirements in the next decade and beyond
Short Description:The authors of this report argue that the demand for workers to fill jobs in the middle of the labor market—those that require more than high-school, but less than a four-year degree—will likely remain quite robust relative to its supply, especially in key sectors of the economy.
Annotation:In this paper, the authors review evidence on how the demand for workers with different levels of education and training will evolve over the next decade and beyond. The authors analyze data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) on recent and projected future demand for jobs in the middle of the labor market. The authors also consider projected trends in the supply of workers at different levels of education.
