There's no arguing the facts: California's unemployment rate, as of May, was 8.6 percent. Yet there are more than 840,000 jobs available now. The gap between the number of folks out of work and the number of open jobs is shocking, yet those who study the state's economy know there's one big challenge standing in the way of closing in on that disparity—having a skilled workforce.
Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain once said, "It's all to do with the training: you can do a lot if you're properly trained."
Amen to that, Your Highness.
