with the skills we need.” It is the same problem whether the business it huge or small. In The number one answer that keeps coming up; “we just cannot find the right people fact when Inc. did a survey of 5000 CEO’s in 2013 76 percent all said the same thing. The major problem is finding qualified people. https://www.Inc.com
These CEO’s are saying, half of the applicant cannot even do simple math and a good share cannot even read a ruler and do know what a lathe is much less know how to read one. The young people coming up who is supposedly the “cream of the crop” are selfish and unmotivated.
Express Employment Services, says one of the biggest problems is one out of four people cannot pass a drug test. Another problem is the people that come to a ply for a job are lazy. The American work ethic just is not there anymore like it once was.
Are what these CEOs saying true? Yes, finding people to fill very specific jobs for some industries is very hard to fine. However, on the other side of the coin the “skills-gap crisis” does not exist. https://www.opednews.com
The companies have the solution at their feet, (so to speak), Start training programs, pay competitive wages, work with the community colleges, the Government, and maybe even be not so picky. What ever happen to in-house training? There was a time if a company had a really good employee but did not have the skills for a specific job, however, had the work ethic and wanted to learn the company trained that person. It was called apprenticeship.
Only 21percent of our work force have had some kind of skilled training in the last five years. Not all of these problems should be laid on the shoulders of the companies either. The unemployed musses should shoulder some of this unskilled problem. There are local job training programs out there; therefore, it is a matter of signing up and getting the training. It is all too easy to blame big businesses for the unemployment rate. While there are thousands of able bodied men and women sitting at home collecting welfare checks; why should they work? This looks like a triangular problem involving; big businesses, the unemployed and the government. We, as a country have created a society of people who find it too easy to not work. The other thing is there are still plenty of “older workers” that are on social security that cannot make it on what they get each month who would more than happy to go to work. https://www.Inc.com
