Report: Skilled labor gap in U.S. manufacturing

A new report from Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute found that American manufacturing companies are having trouble filling open positions that require skilled labor. 

The survey found 67 percent of respondents reporting a moderate to severe shortage of available, qualified workers, and 56 percent expecting the shortage to grow worse in the next three to five years.  In addition, the survey indicates that 5 percent of current jobs at respondent manufacturers are unfilled due to a lack of qualified candidates.  This would translate to 600,000 unfilled positions nationally.
