Sacramento Needs to Address Its Lack of Technical Training

Sacramento Needs to Address Its Lack of Technical Training

By Roger Speer

As the uneven economy recovery continues in California, there is one area where jobs remain available: technical workers.

Workers with vocational training are currently in demand. The hardest segment of the workforce to replace has been the skilled trades, due to a shortage caused by the exodus of highly-skilled baby boomers that are entering retirement.

So where will we find these workers? There are many young adults in the 18- to 24-year-old age bracket that possess no post-high school education. Many of these individuals are either unemployed or have low-paying jobs that offer limited career paths.

While the national unemployment rate has fallen from 10 percent to 5.5 percent since the country entered recession in 2008, youth unemployment has remained stubbornly high, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Pacific announces new Sacramento degrees: Expansion is milestone in region’s higher education

University of the Pacific celebrated June 26 the expansion of its Sacramento campus, longtime home of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law, into a multidisciplinary center that will educate the professionals California needs in the decades ahead.

Joining the law school will be new graduate programs in health, education, business and public policy. Five new degrees will be rolled out over the next two years: Master of Business Administration; Doctor of Education; Master of Public Policy; Master of Physician Assistant Studies; and Master of Public Administration.

“This is a watershed moment for our university,” said Pamela A. Eibeck, president of University of the Pacific. “Pacific has been a pioneer in higher education in California for more than a century and a half, and it is with great excitement that we expand our presence and service in the Sacramento region.”
