Narrowing the Skills Gap: An Interview with Joe Donnelly

Some are saying there is a skills gap in Indiana – that there are manufacturing jobs available but not enough skilled workers to fill them. Correspondent Lauren Glapa spoke with Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly about his support for the Midwestern Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute, which he hopes will train Indiana workers with the skills needed to get those jobs, and his involvement with the Skills2Compete Coalition, a bipartisan group that aims to close the skills gap in Indiana. She then spoke with Indiana University Labor Studies Professor Joe Varga about the economics behind the skills gap, all for today’s WFHB feature exclusive.
