The Skills Gap is Costing Companies... Why?

When will there be time or money for a education to have better job skills?

As everything nothing stays the same! The job markets are looking to go higher.
But at the bottom High schools struggle with cuts to their funding.
But also is the deficient unsustainable living in towns shown by the masses
walking with no cars, all around bad quality of live. Make nothing, have nothing!
If you have nothing you can't get ahead as like getting the job skills it takes education
and so that cost money. As like getting good credit it takes money, you have to
buy something! And so many states are about neglect. Making it hard on the poor
without asking what will that do? Are the able to ask? Well I mean you will have to
think sometime. What is all of those people going to do to the labor force.
Why disable the labor force with people with no cars walking to work.
How are they to get the job skills?

Trump is making things bad for us and all. States are feelling free to be fascist
toward their own people. Neglect, where is the welfare of the people?
It's in the pockets of the stock investors corporations going up only
to be pulled down by the poor that can't afford their job skills.
If you have nothing you have nothing! Don't expect anything!
If the workers can't take care of themselves from neglect then how
are they to take care of the workplace?

~~~~~The Skills Gap is Costing Companies Nearly $1 Million Annually, According to New CareerBuilder Survey. "Workers say they are lagging behind. Those doing the hiring are not the only ones noticing the issue. 1 in 5 workers (20 percent) say their professional skills are not up to date. Fifty-seven percent of workers reported that they want to learn a new skillset to land a better-paying, more fulfilling job, but half of them said they can't afford to do so."

~~~~~House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday the current four-year college system leads to "mountains of debt" and not enough of the technical skills needed in today's workforce."

But as you know you get what you pay for. What do you expect from a brain surgeon
that got his Medical degree, Neurosurgery residency and so from a JR college?
What will that DR do to the job market for his profession? Like not joining a union
you get the lowest pay you can with no one seeing you get better so you get worst!
And so the worst is quicksand bringing others down also!

~~~~~Why Corporate America is recruiting high schoolers
Since 2011, more than 400 companies have partnered with 79 public high schools across the country to offer a six-year program called P-Tech. Students can enroll for grades 9 to 14 and earn both a high school and an associate's degree in a science, tech, engineering or math related field.

The companies offer input on the curriculum, bring students on site, pair them with employee mentors, and offer paid internships, or some combination of the above.

"There's a war for talent across all our competitors. We know we're going to need a lot of different pathways to bring talent in," said Jennifer Ryan Crozier, president of the IBM Foundation.

IBM was the first to try out the P-Tech model, working with a high school in Brooklyn and the City University of New York.

Since then, energy companies National Grid and Con Edison have partnered with another school in New York City, as has Montefiore Medical Center. Both Motorola and Verizon work with schools in Chicago and Dow Chemical will start working with a new program in Louisiana in the fall — to name a few.

Connecticut, Maryland, Rhode Island, Colorado, and Texas also have P-Tech schools, and state funding has been set aside to open some in California in 2019.

P-tech schools are a modern version of what were once commonly known as vocational schools. But unlike those of the past, which sometimes became a "dumping ground for less-academic kids," newer career and technical programs are careful not to close off a pathway to college, said Brian Jacob, a professor of education policy and economics at the University of Michigan.

Instead, they aim to prepare students for both a career and higher education.

In fact, a majority of P-Tech's early graduates have chosen to pursue a bachelor's degree rather than jump immediately into the workforce.

Employers know they are playing the long game.

"This is about preparing the next generation of the workforce," Crozier said. "It's not a short-term fix for roles we have open today," she said.

Noting vocational schools. But unlike those of the past, which sometimes became a "dumping ground for less-academic kids," was because many small towns had no foundation for learning and school finding was cut more. The kids would of been better with education but was deprived!

It's not that they are stupid it's that they could never afford their education in the 
first place. Everything was low so low is what they got! So many kids went into vocational schools to pick up on what they missed because their school didn't cover what they needed for college. There is the bottom also of their parents not being able to read and or just having the time for their kid. Many in small towns can not afford preschool, daycare  where kids have the resources to learn to read so they come into school ready! If you don't then you are behind!

Or like a Abandoned child syndrome or like Asperger Syndrome type of lifestyle,
resulting from their parents working all night, sleeping all day.
From the neglect of no time or just being broke with no security!
Well it's true and all of those things do need to be looked at when
you get pushing for more job skills in people. Are they able to?
What needs to be fixed? The point is to think! Rise the pay make a foundation!
