A USA Today article Monday cites a Boston Consulting Group study examining the manufacturing skills gap. Essentially, the reports says there isn't one.
It's noteworthy that no Ohio metro areas showed up among the handful of places BCG said had a skills gap.
The clamor about a gap is noted it "can be managed" and higher wages are part of how.
I'm told BCG cites multi-craft maintenance, engineering, and welding among skills areas where a skills gap is, indeed, identified as a true skills gap.
I'd conclude this: This is a debate worth continuing.
