In about 20 years, California will not have enough college-educated workers to meet its projected economic needs, concludes a study by the San Francisco-based Public Policy Institute of California.
In 2025, according to the report, two out of every five California jobs--41 percent--will require a college degree, but only 32 percent of adults will be college-educated. If current trends continue, out-of-state workers are unlikely to close the gap, and the arrival rate of skilled immigrants would have to double to meet economic demands. The study encourages officials to prevent the projected labor shortage by raising college-entrance and graduation rates.
