From Robert Whitcomb's "Digital Diary'' column in GoLocal24.com.
Massachusetts’s jobless rate in December was 2.9 percent and the state’s average wages are among the highest in the nation. Massachusetts employers need more skilled workers to staff the many well-paying and sophisticated jobs available in the Bay State. That its public schools are probably the best in America, and that the state hosts world famous colleges and universities, helps to churn out great workers. But so successful are so many Massachusettscompanies that they’re desperate for more highly skilled workers. In a sense, a nice problem to have!
