Springfield Chamber of Commerce Concerned About City's Skilled Workforce


A skilled workforce, or the lack of it, has some local business leaders worried.

 

The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce says there are not enough skilled workers to meet the demand for such employees, now and in the future. The Chamber says future job growth will focus primarily on jobs that require some kind of degree beyond high school, but six out of ten working-age adults in Sangamon County currently don’t have as much as an associate’s degree.

 

The Chamber will hold a news conference Tuesday to discuss strategies to cope with the problem.
