about the program
Where are California’s employers most likely to find the educated workers the state will need to keep up with economic projections? This meeting, co-hosted with the Bay Area Economic Forum, raises the issue regarding the anticipated skilled-labor shortage, including California’s increasing inability to retain its own college graduates and the implausibility of attracting enough foreign or domestic migrants to fill this gap.
Research Fellow Hans Johnson is an expert in demographics, immigration, migration, population issues, and housing.
