Pioneer Valley Facing Challenge Creating Skilled Workers

From a Massachusetts Executive Office of Labor & Workforce Development press release:

New research finds Pioneer Valley region facing challenge creating next generation of skilled workers. The Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development (EOLWD) and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston today announced that 47.1 percent of the region's civilian labor force was 45 years of age or older, while only 31.9 percent was under the age of 35 in 2008-2010. The region's labor force is older than the state's labor force.  As a consequence, the region faces the challenge of equipping younger workers with the skills needed to replace retiring baby boomers. The report, entitled "Labor Market Trends in the Pioneer Valley Region", is part of a joint project between EOLWD's Commonwealth Corporation and the Boston Fed's New England Public Policy Center.
