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.
