IT’S TIME TO INVEST IN “MIDDLE-SKILL” JOBS & EDUCATION
50% of America’s jobs require more than a high school diploma…
But, less than a four-year degree (i.e., middle-skill workers).
The demand for middle-skilled workers remains high, yet the lack of a properly trained workforce is hindering the ability of U.S. businesses to compete globally. Exposing high school students to various career pathways allow students to make informed decisions, while opening new doors of opportunity.
