Mark: Many business owners say they aren’t able to get enough skilled workers to do the kind of tasks that need to get done in a competitive society right now. In a recent Harvard Business School study on competitiveness, Professor Allen Grossman explained the need for a reformed educational system. “There are more job openings today than ever before and 50% of businesses report they can’t get enough skilled laborers,” Grossman said. “We can’t be competitive unless we have good workers in our factories, our offices, or whatever area of our business world that we’re focusing on.” While progress is being made, it’s happening very slowly, Grossman added. We clearly need to close the borders, raise tariffs and cut taxes.
