Analysis: There is an American Blue Collar Shortage

, Accuracy in Academia, Leave a comment

An analysis conducted by The Conference Board discovered that there is an increasing shortage of blue collar workers in American industries, which is a concern for companies and recruiters. The analysis found that it is harder to fill blue collar job positions, more so than white collar job positions that require a bachelor’s degree from a college or university.
Does this mean that college degrees are becoming less important in the current job market? Possibly, which could affect college enrollment in the short-term.
