Over supply of under-qualified workers hits market

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Job-hopefuls may be applying for jobs all over town, but are they qualified?

Some companies say they have positions available but need highly specialized workers, and they're not finding them.

Companies slashed millions of middle-skill, middle-wage jobs over the last couple of years so now, economists and employers say there's a glut of people who don't qualify for highly skilled jobs.

Both agree there are skilled people in the job market but they may not actively be looking for work.
