Bridging the gap
The depth, breadth, and scope of LAC’s industrial complex offer a myriad of middle skill occupations that pay well, and provide the upward mobility that is foundational to economic security. Yet many of these jobs remain unfilled. Residents struggle to find work and companies struggle to find qualified, middle-skilled employees. Within this ‘skilled worker supply/demand challenge’ lies our objective — to increase the availability of a well-trained skilled workforce in LA County in order to close the immense supply and demand gap.
