The workforce skills gap is already a reality in California. While the demand for college-educated workers in the state will continue to rise, the supply of them will not keep up. At the same time, the supply of workers with a high school diploma or less is projected to exceed the need for them. This presentation examines California’s current and future workforce gap and its likely effects on the state’s economic growth and on workers themselves.
