What Is the Skills Gap?
Robert Kaplan
April 12, 2017
It's in the 11th District. In my district, we do surveys of business leaders, and they tell us regularly that
they have more openings for skilled workers than there is supply. What are examples? Pipefitters,
automotive technicians? Um, construction trades, registered nurses. There's a long list. If you take those
local reports that we each that we get in our district and other districts and you broaden that to the
nation, our judgment is there's a substantial skills gap.
