Workforce Development in Detroit: Connecting youth

the importance of workforce development

Today’s production processes heavily dependent on human capital

Firms are more mobile; can move to more attractive labor markets

Demographic trends effect labor supply

Knowledge and technology based economy

The Importance of Workforce Development:
need to connect workforce development to economic development

Equilibrium between supply and demand of labor

Leakage of jobs created by ED due to lack of commitment to place

Failure of labor market to reach certain populations

Workforce increased importance to regional competitiveness

Need to Connect Workforce development to Economic development:
challenges for the michigan workforce system

Less educated workers who entered the workforce during good economic times now laid off and looking i.e. workforce offices face more clients than ever

Jobs being created in key industries are increasingly knowledge-intensive…mismatch for skills of laid off workers

Increase of BA in the workforce, competition for the jobs that do exist hence more challenging for less educated former high earners.

High earnings tradition makes it difficult to convince laid off blue collar workers that low paying service jobs were the only thing available for them without further training
