There have been a lot of articles like this one (you can’t see the whole article unless you subscribe, but it has the part I’m interested in):
From the Pioneer Valley to the North Shore to Southeastern Massachusetts, manufacturers say they can’t find workers with skills needed for a modern manufacturing industry that focuses on advanced products for technology, medical, aerospace, and defense sectors. While Governor Deval Patrick and President Obama pursue policies to expand manufacturing, companies say the shortage of skilled labor is making it harder for them, the industry, and ultimately the state’s economy to grow.
These type of articles confuse me a bit. When did it become accepted that the state has to train workers for companies? If a company can’t find a worker who has the skills necessary, why can’t they train them? I thought it was only us liberals that believed in government solutions to problems?
