​In the last two decades the United States has experienced a dramatic change in the nature of its workforce. The weak global economy has created catastrophic consequences for many states with ensuing layoffs and job losses. To remedy the problem, the United States economy is transforming into a society that demands new skills, knowledge, and credentials from its labor force. Through adaptation and innovation, the country’s 21st-century plan is to prepare, attract, and retain skilled workers. The initiative demands a workforce that is both highly educated and highly skilled. Due to changes in economy, workers without a high school diploma or postsecondary education can no longer expect to hold a family-sustaining job. In a presentation at the WorkKeys National Conference, Stover DeRocco (2009), President of the Manufacturing Institute Workforce Division, reported that approximately 80% of U.S. producers cannot find educated skilled workers for their entry-level jobs. Additionally, each year 1.2 million young citizens drop out of high school and are educationally unprepared for work or for post- secondary education. Consequently, these adults with low education and skill levels are more likely to live in poverty and to receive government assistance.  read more
