We’re Facing a
Workplace Skills Gap
Florida needs a world-class, skilled workforce to lead in global innovation, ensure future economic growth and fill the jobs being created by technical employers.
Unfortunately, employers simply can’t find applicants with the necessary skills for today’s workplace. Even worse, this skills gap is widening due to students being steered to pursue bachelor’s degrees instead of entering a technical, skilled, and service field.
As result, hundreds-of-thousands of jobs are left unfilled every single year.

“The thing about SkillsUSA that’s so cool, and the reason that my foundation has supported it for years, is that it is deliberately focused on celebrating a skill. Three million jobs right now exist in the trades and transportation and commerce. The skills gap is real. Training kids and getting them excited to do the jobs that exist ought to be job one. SkillsUSA does that in a big way.”
