Report: Job gap in Iowa

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

A new report shows many workers lack the job skills needed to fill jobs offered by Iowa employers.

The Iowa Workforce Development report says half of Iowa's jobs require middle skill preparations, like a two year degree. However, only 33 percent of Iowa's workers had skills needed for those jobs.

The department spokesperson said that if Iowa doesn't have enough skilled workers, companies will start to look at other states.
