It’s really frustrating and continues to be a real issue for manufacturers like me when we hear the unemployment numbers but yet we cannot find people skilled to come to work for our companies. We are constantly interviewing and finding that the people we bring in do not have the math skills that are required to operate our equipment. We can buy all of the equipment we need but we cannot find the skilled labor we need to advance our companies.
